The water is really nice. No waves and clear water. The beach is right next to the street which isnt so nice. There are several restaurants at the beach and on the other side of the road. The sand is nice.

It is a nice clean beach. It is narrow in most areas but you can walk for miles. This beach is in Las Terrenas which is the northern part of DR. I wont drive up here just for this beach but to visit all the northern beaches.

This is how a beach should look like in your dreams. :) Lovely, especially thanks to the no traffic zone coastside, only walkway with nice houses and residences, the must have palm trees and of course the Carib sea with the golden sun. A must see in Las Terrenas.

This area is not touristy...there is a great walking path. Surf is good for beginners and body surfing area is fun. Definitely worth a day visit.

This beach truly represents picturesque Caribbean! We spent Christmas Day here and it was very quiet. This is not a tourist beach with people trying to sell you things. It is simply a beach! We took food and drinks for the day and enjoyed a beautiful day relaxing in this stunning location. A must visit with a picnic and plenty... More

Beautiful beaches. Great for wave surfing. Fun place to visit in the area. Offers a different experience than the other beaches in the area.

Beautiful unspoiled beach, and worth the 15 minute drive from our hotel in Las Terrenas. We arrived late afternoon, and the beach was already mostly in shade. So if you like plenty of sun and you are visiting around Christmas, you might want to get here earlier than we did...

Surfing was the best in this area. I would recomend to stay two nights at this beach if you like surfing and calm place.
