Boca Chica Beach

Due to its proximity to the city of Santo Domingo Las Americas International Airport, Boca Chica is known as the capital's beach. It is is very well protected by a large coral reef, and its shallow waters make it a favorite spot for families on vacation. The beach also has perfect weather for sailing, making it one of the best places to hold a regatta. The area is also surrounded by a variety of seafood restaurants that specialize in fish and shellfish.

Caribe Beach

Located just ten minutes from Boca Chica and 45 minutes from the capital, this beach, also known as Embassy Beach, is in a small inlet where the waters are very quiet in the morning. Once it gets to midday the waves begin to build and are great for both surfing and boogie boarding.

Guayacanes & Juan Dolio Beaches

Popular because of their great restaurants, these beaches attract residents from Santo Domingo for long weekends, and are perfect for taking long walks under coconut palms. Through the Ministry of Tourism, the government recently invested millions of dollars in restoring and extending Juan Dolio Beach.
