“Los Corbanitos” and the Bay of Ocoa: A Sea of Light

Near the southwest region town of Bani, in the Dominican Republic, visitors can go on exciting tours to “Los Corbanitos” and the Bay of Ocoa.

These tours will take them to this breathtaking coastal region known for its magnificent mountains, unusual landscapes and magnificent unspoiled beaches.

Some 3.5 kilometers from the town’s main road visitors will reach the town of Sabana Buey, on the country’s southwest region.

From there, visitors will run into “Los Corbanitos,” one of the country’s most beautiful and unspoiled beaches.

“Los Corbanitos” is different from all other beaches because on one side it is protected by mangrove forests and on the other by Salinas Point, a natural barrier that protects the beach from the Caribbean Sea.

The beach area is rich in waterfowl and its dry tropical vegetation, consisting of an impressive variety of cacti, makes it a very different destination from most other beaches found in the country.

Near “Los Corbanitos” is “Palmar de Ocoa,” a quiet fishing village situated in the very heart of the Bay of Ocoa.

Again, beaches in the area are very different from the rest of Dominican beaches.

This particular beach features coarse mustard-colored sand, very different from the fine white sand found in “Los Corbanitos.”

The “Palmar de Ocoa” region is also unique. Visitors will enjoy fabulous fresh seafood, and typical Dominican dishes. In the last few years the beauty of the region has attracted many who have built beautiful homes overlooking the bay area.
