Playa Grande

Reviewed By Faisal R - Toronto, Canada

Staying at the Grand Bahia about 20 mins away in Rio San Juan, we were VERY disappointed with the beach on the resort but Playa Grande saved the day!
Soft sand, crystal blue waters, not super busy (we were there during low season in May), souvenir sellers who were not pushy and showers + change rooms to clean up after.
Not sure if this is the case all the time but when we were there, the waves were quite strong - strong enough for surfers to practice. If you aren't a good swimmer, don't go too deep and pay attention to the waves!

Laguna El Dudu

Reviewed By mb1cpa - Palm Springs, California

We went with a group of friends and enjoyed the two separate lagoons. The grounds and lagoons were very clean. There is a pretty steep staircase down so takes a fair amount of ability to get down and up. The pools themselves are cool but rocks a slippery. Did not try the zip line but it looked fun for someone in shape to hang on. It was very warm the day we went, but if cooler, would be a good place to hang out on the grounds a half day or so. They serve some food and beer There is a really cool cave with ancient paintings. Bring flashlight for this.

Gri Gri Lagoon

Reviewed By keironpike - Neath, United Kingdom

Highly recommend this excursion. Once of the best that we went on. You go through a cave then down into a crystal clear lagoon where you can swim with fish. Bring some bread and/or bananas and the fish come right up to you! You can jump off the rocks into the water too which is really fun! This excursion made our holiday.

Playa Diamante

Reviewed By Easylivingtravel - Tampa, Florida

This was a little public beach that I thought would be more than what it was. It's cool for photos of the fishing boats and enjoying seafood by the water but the beach isn't very attractive. Definitely need a car to visit this beach and there are no sunbathing chairs. It looks more like a fishing area than an ideal beach for swimming and relaxing. I wouldn't come here for a day at the beach. At the most I would eat here and carry on after. The road to the beach isn't that great either.

La Entrada Beach

Reviewed By Chilidogtraveler823

This Beach is a HUGE local beach on the weekends. A melting pot of anything and everything North Coast DR.
Monday through Friday it is fairly quite. Alot of expats take these days to come down and enjoy this very attractive beach setting and its vista's as well as play with their dogs and let them run. There are some food vendors open during the week if you want to do lunch. They are all open on Saturday and Sunday and slammed with all the bus full of locals that Jam-Dance and drink the day away...if it is too much for you, do not despair. Just head a half mile west to EL ANAFE on the other end of the beach and chill out with plenty of space.

Piscina natural la catalina Cabrera

Reviewed By jasonpan1 - Miami, Florida

The coolest water around and shady place to enjoy as a couple or family. The beach is right there and you could even take Boat to Cabrera and go by water. You could bring your picnic and spend the day there.

Monumento Natural El Saltadero

Reviewed By ArturoFeliz - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

El saltadero is a true marvel of nature, even the temperature feels different when you're there. It's a beauty and if you're around you should definitely check it out. I'm not sure I would recommend you jump (saltadero means literally "the place to jump from") unless you're fit and adventurous.

Blue Lake

Reviewed By AimeeValdez - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Es sin duda alguna un hermoso lugar para refrescarse en los calurosos días, sus aguas son azuladas y aunque es bastante profunda en ella se puede disfrutar de la naturaleza en su máxima expresión. Al llegar, se encuentra cubierta por rocas que cubren el agua de la laguna, la misma que proviene de manera subterránea por las cuevas que se encuentran en su interior. Esta laguna no es muy conocida, se encuentra en las cercanías de la Laguna Dudú, pero quien ha ido a Cabrera y no le visita, realmente se ha perdido de mucho. Lo más confortable del caso es que, es bastante económico visitarle y si se acude a horas tempranas de la mañana, hay muy pocos visitantes y el agua se encuentra bien fría para relajarse. Sin duda alguna, al visitar Cabrera es una parada que no puedo dejar de hacer.
