Playa Las Ballenas, Las Terrenas
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Soak in some vitamin D on the sand at Playa Las Ballenas. The tropical paradise features pristine sand and gently rippling waters, with a line of shady palm trees bowing over the shoreline. Just before the sand, find a grassy area with plenty of umbrellas and chairs. Grab a bite or a refreshing drink at one of the surrounding bars or restaurants, and enjoy views over the Caribbean Sea.
