Playa Ensenada, Punta Rucia

4.0
#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.

  • 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

  • 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
