Boca Chica, Santo Domingo

1.7
#2 of 14 in Outdoors in Santo Domingo
Head down to the southern coast of Hispaniola to find Boca Chica, a popular beach with amenities and natural charm. Take a stroll on the soft white sand before picking your spot along the wide beach, trying out a new beach sport, or simply lying back with a good book. The beach gains protection from a coral reef, meaning that the water remains calm and shallow. These conditions make the beach very popular with families looking for a safe place for young kids to swim. Lining the beach, along with the palms, you'll find plenty of local businesses, including beach resorts, restaurants, and hotels.

    They say that if you're going to Dominican Republic and not try a Yaniqueque, it is as if you had not been there. Selling original Yaniqueques to beach and the truth is that this is not so beautiful, there are better such as Bayahibe and Punta Cana beaches.

    We returned that day for our country, but our flight was scheduled for 6 pm. We had free time and decided to visit a beach that was close to the airport to avoid inconvenience of output. They took us to Boca Chica. Beautiful beach, you can swim without any problem. Hotels, offer you pass to your area a little more private and offer facilities with only the payment of what they consume, only there to search the sites if you want to hang out where is not so many people and to have your table, umbrella, beds, among others. The exquisite beach at a pleasant temperature, without waves, quiet and a color that only to see it was you liked and was fascinated by. When you visit San Domingo, do not forget to escape to Boca Chica, you going to have a very good time.
