  • Beautiful little local beach with a lot of charm and beautiful waters. The beach has a couple small/local seafood restaurants and bars and one well established main restaurant and bar by where you park.
  • La Playita might be one of the best beaches in the Dominican Republic with its perfect mixture of seclusion and beauty along with its far corners where one who wishes can avoid high concentrations of other tourists. The photos are from La Playita beach in the water.
  • Beautiful and uncrowded beach. Walk to get there was great.
  • Always a breeze. Pick your own fish. Fried parrot fish with plantains Some Good
