Imagine you’re sat in the living room and you hear the postman deliver some mail… only for it to be a postcard of a beautiful beach in the Dominican Republic with your family writing on the back telling you all about the wonderful time they’re having in the Caribbean. Booking a beach holiday to the Dominican Republic will probably be on the top of your to do list to go and see these amazing beaches and we don’t blame you! Here are Holiday Genie’s recommendations of the best beaches in Dominican Republic… it’ll be love at first sight.
One of our favourite beaches in Dominican Republic has to be Cayo Arena. The beautiful white sandy beach is famous all over the Caribbean island for its amazing opportunity to snorkel in the middle of the dark blue sea. It is a beautiful small island that you can easily get a boat ride to and at sunset, makes a brilliant photo and view.
When you think of a Caribbean beach, you might think of crystal clear blue seas and white fine sand. Playa Bonita is exactly that and really draws you in with its beauty! The beach is separated into sections; the western part has incredibly still water, similar to a swimming pool. The Eastern part is home to hotels and has a lot more activity around and in the ocean so whether you’re looking for a buzzing energy or quietness, Playa Bonita can offer both.
Playa Las Galeras
A top beach in Dominican Republic is Playa Las Galeras… just think of palm trees, sunsets and a dreamy view. It is a quiet beach that can be found Northeastern of the island and is home to a recreational diving aquarium which is the highlight of this long and jaw-dropping beach.
Playa Dorada & Costa Dorada
Another one of our best beaches in Dominican Republic has to be Playa Dorada & Costa Dorada. The beaches have a lot of resorts on them as it’s not hard to see why, with a long stretch of sand and excellent water quality! A lot of water-sports are done here and as the sun goes up in the morning, the glistening sea and white sands makes you fall in love with the Caribbean island even more.
Another small island boasts one of Holiday Genie’s favourite beaches in the Dominican Republic. You can easily get a water-taxi over and enjoy the beautiful beach Cayo Levantado. The purest white sand will make you realise your tan even more and you’ll be able to see right through the water. It is the perfect place for kayaking, sea lion encounters and finding other water sports equipment rentals. This is one place you’ll never forget.
Playa Los Patos
What makes this beach different from the other beaches in Dominican Republic is that instead of sand there are flawless pebbles. It is a great beach with and is extremely photogenic for being where the shortest river in the world joins with the Caribbean Sea. If you’re looking for an excellent place to go surfing, this beach is an excellent choice.
Just looking at one imagine of the beaches is enough for you to fall in love, so just imagine how you’ll feel if you’re really there feeling the sand (or pebbles) between your toes. These are just a few of our favourites, and there are so many more beautiful beaches in Dominican Republic to discover.
