Welcome to the Dominican Republic! The Caribbean island of Hispaniola is amongst the most blessed on earth and we really can’t find enough good words to describe it. Home to rainforests, waterfalls, majestic mountains and of course endless tropical white sand beaches, holidays in the Dominican Republic are made for enjoying what the Caribbean landscape is about. As the beaches on offer on this part of the island are numerous, we have decided to mention our favourite and maybe persuade you to daydream and become one of the lucky travellers to have their holidays in the Dominican Republic.
Dominican Republic’s most famous resort, Punta Cana, has something for everyone. Home to a large number of hotels providing all the amenities necessary, this is probably the best place to spend your holidays if you are after an all inclusive holiday to the Dominican Republic. Focusing on its beaches however, this is where this resort really shines. Endless stretches of white sand and crystal clear waters are the norm here and the only word to describe them is; mesmerising. As most are privately owned by hotels you will need a fee to access if you live off the resorts but a small fee goes a long way in enjoying some of the best beaches on the island.
Less developed than Punta Cana, Las Galeras is a resort reserved for those looking to spend their holidays in the Dominican Republic relaxing with a cocktail, gazing down the endless sea. Its beaches are magnificent, the sea creatures adorning its waters colourful and the living’s easy. What more would you need to relax?
Exotic by name, exotic by nature, Bayahibe is a famous resort for the adventurous. Its place on the southheast part of the island is perfect for watersports and deep sea fishing. If you are more inclined to scuba dive you will also be rewarded with stunning coral reefs, colourful underwater life and three shipwrecks to explore. Holidays in the Dominican Republic never last enough and if you happen to visit this beach you won’t want to come back.
Home to fascinating history as well as tropical beaches and great resorts, Boca Chica is indeed a special beach. Made popular in the 1950’s and still going strong, this beach is amongst the best on the island with the finest of sands and shallow waters, making it arguably the one of the most children friendly. Close to two small islands, the possibilities are endless if you decide to hop on a boat and explore, whereas the usual amenities found in most resorts can be found here as well.
Think tropical paradise, think palm trees, think white sand, think unspoilt beauty, now, google the words Saona Island and let your eyes feast and your brain wander. Discovered by Christopher Columbus during the 15th century and left mostly untouched ever since, this is where Caribbean beauty shines bright! In order to access this unspoilt wildlife haven you will have to either rent a boat or hop on one of the tours visiting the island daily but it’s well worth the effort. The shallow, clear waters are a treat to swim in, snorkel and enjoy whereas the surrounding environment will make you forget about the outside world.
