The Bayahibe residents who work in the shops in the public beach were so friendly and helpful. I had a problem with my phone and they sat with me and helped until I found my friend. Look for Tito at the shops!

White sand and blue waters but also not properly developed. Couldn't find a shower to rinse off and the available chairs were to be hired by locals that picked up a fight who saw us first. They asked 500pesos for 2 chairs and an umbrella, all items had seen better days. Moreover, there are limited options for lunch. The beach... More

Nice beach overall. Powdery sand, friendly people, palm trees, etc. Nice scenic views including the sunset. However, there are A LOT of discarded boats and trash at the far end of the beach. Good place to find a cheaper excursion versus booking through a travel agency or hotel. We talked to some of the guys that set up shop on... More

We arrived here somewhat by mistake. We both loved it instantly! This is where the excursions start to go to Samana island etc on snorkelling trips as well as diving and fishing charters. Beautiful mix of the locals and tourist industry but kept its charm. Not over develop, clean, authentic restaurants, good food and clean water!

Nice beach with soft white sand, chairs and umbrellas available for rent. There are a few shops on the beach where you can buy souvenirs,sunglasses,hats...bargaining is recommended.
