La playita is a terrific beach for families. The water is fairly shallow and calm, there is fun snorkeling fairly close to the shore, and there are two different restaurants right on the beach. more »
Love this place! Nice beach with clear water and white sand, some services for chair longs, small food places are very rustic! Lobsters, fish, octopus with local Dominican food on site. Very tasty! Mountains on opposite side of the beach gives an amazing landscape view. I’ve visited so many Dominican and Caribbean beaches and I would say it’s one of the best!
This is also called Las Galeras and it is beautiful. The way the palm trees come out of the sand is post card worthy. The first time I was there a little rain was sweeping through and my pictures are breathtaking. Yes visit!
