Key Paradise, Puerto Plata

4.1
#7 of 12 in Parks in Puerto Plata
Snorkel, swim, and sunbathe at Key Paradise, a tropical oasis of the Caribbean Sea. Crystal clear calm waters and luscious white sand make the small island a great snorkeling location, which has a high underwater visibility. Bring a waterproof camera and take pictures of exotically colored fish, seashells, and a healthy reef system. You'll also find a bar on the island serving refreshing drinks including rum and fruit punches. Gain access with a boat from Puerto Plata and bring plenty of sunscreen as there's minimal shade on the island.
