The three Dominican beaches were selected from a list of the Caribbean’s top 25 beaches. “Playa Bavaro” in Punta Cana, in the country’s easternmost region, “Playa Bonita” in Samana, on the northeast region, and “Playa Sosua,” on the north coast were selected by TripAdvisor, the popular travel site, which included the beaches in its Travellers’ Choice Awards 2015.
“Playa Bavaro” came in on the eighth position.
This popular eastern region beach has received Blue Flag certification, a distinction awarded to beaches that meet the quality standards established by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
“Playa Bonita,” located in Las Terrenas, Samana – on the country’s northeast region – came in 18th on the list. It is by far one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire northeast region.
The beach is famous for its fine white sand, calm and shallow waters, endless line of coconut trees and truly spectacular setting.
“Playa Sosua” came in 22 on the prestigious list. The beach bears the name of Sosua, one of the oldest north coast tourism enclaves.
The beach is conveniently located some 20 minutes from Puerto Plata.
