Playa Ensenada, Punta Rucia

4.1
#9 of 11 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.

  • A fisherman's village beach enjoyed by the locals who are very friendly and relaxed. Beautiful white sand. I enjoyed walking there very much, especially at sunset.  more »
  • If you want to swim in a beach quiet, clean and crystalline waters Cove is the perfect choice! Apart that is excellent for a good seafood at any of the booths (small restaurants), you can not visit the area and stop going to Cayo arena!

  • The beach is beautiful, has parking accessible with surveillance, baths and showers, many places to eat! I recommend the kiosquito #20 TEO here, the service is super, moro rice, the chillo and lobster taste very good as well economic. The beach has no long waves (at least when I went) is super crystal clear water. That Yes, it is better go in week since ends the week there are too many people and many revolutions.

  • Wow a great blue water beach is a natural pool. Love it and the food so good
  • Be at beach to past time with your family
  • Beach Cove a place preferred to enjoy with the whole family, has different local food which you have a variable choice. The beach does not have the usual waves that have, very calm and is not deep, which makes it a paradise! Great place for everyone!

  • Very clean, a beach for all ages by the tranquility of the wind. It is not very deep and has no dangerous waves. Surrounded by food outlets.

  • One of the best beaches in the Dominican Republic. Keep the area clean, ideal for going with the family and children, on the shallow beach. Various businesses of food (fish and seafood). My only complaint is with the music of some business, it is the only thing that has to change, because it bothers you, when you are looking for peace of mind
