    Our visit was 48 h after the passage of Hurricane Maria. The décor, according to locals, has changed radically as a result of this storm. The beach is beautiful and the turquoise waters reminding us of Polynesia.

    Beautiful small equipped, quiet, secluded beach with its lagoon and nearby walk to the village of Las Galeras

    Awesome beach with nice sand. Umbrellas and chairs for rent. Not busy on weekdays. You can rent snorkeling equipment or go diving.

    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.
