Playa Ensenada, Punta Rucia

3.7
#9 of 10 in Beaches in Puerto Plata Province
Lay back and relax in the crystal clear waters at Playa Ensenada. The beach is popular with the locals who come to enjoy the warm, shallow water. Move over to the western end of the beach for a more tranquil experience and less-crowded sands with a mountain backdrop. Alternatively, the eastern section of the beach offers a livelier experience, with shacks selling food and visitors enjoying rum cocktails.

  • With Diana barbecue, here's a nice hut who serves you a grilled barbecued fish accompanied a divine sauce and veggies ultra fresh. All washed down with a nice french white wine and if the heart tells you a small salad of Octopus which is worth a visit
