Bayahibe & Dominicus Beaches
Since they are so close to La Romana, Dominicans are in the habit of saying Bayahibe and Dominicus beaches are in La Romana. However, they are actually located in the province of La Altagracia right next to La Romana. Popular with visitors, these beaches have great restaurants, craft shops and various hotels and all-inclusive resorts.
 
Beaches on Catalina Island
Facing the city of La Romana, visitors can take a boat to Catalina Island from La Romana or Cumayasa. This protected area actually classified as a Natural Monument, and is six square miles large. The middle of the island has a tropical forest surrounded by a mile of fine white sand and calm waters, making it a snorkeling paradise.
 
 
Beaches on Saona Island

The beaches on Saona Island have been cleared to create some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the Caribbean. Fourteen miles long and a little over three miles wide, Saona Island is a very popular area of the Eastern National Park. The island is home to 112 species of birds, along with turtles, sharks, bottle-nose dolphins, whales and manatees around the island waters. It is complete with facilities such as bathrooms, showers and picnic tables for visitors who want to spend the day there. The island has a small population living in the settlement of Mano Juan.
