Boca Chica, Santo Domingo
(1.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This area is a little modest but very nice to relax if you don't mind the absence of luxuries. They have really great food and it's pretty affordable. 
  • Although count with a good beach and several local of drinks and music, needs much attention. There is lack of cleaning and need to improve streets, hotels and the area in general. I do not come back.

  • A sea beautiful but environment very neglected, in the Bocachica find very good cuisine, restaurants top up to jobs of fishermen who prepare very good food. What I didn't like is the sloppy having the beach
