Boca Chica, Santo Domingo

1.7
#2 of 15 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.

  • We visited this beach and were there only for 20 minutes, until we where told is a beach attending by the people of the city to be the most closest to the city, the surrounding area is dirty (as in most of Santo Domingo) sellers you harass , if beach this regular because even though they have the turquoise blue of the Caribbean Sea it is a pity that all the surrounding areas are dirty, places to eat near from my little healthy view, the guide that took us to make the scale on this beach took us to a place where you see den sandwiches and honestly I did not eat, I thought it would give me a disease, in general I expected much more from my visit to Dominican Republic and is very disappointed, I think there are better beaches and places in the Caribbean in other countries, from my point of view would not return.

  • It is very crowded by the capital, and is really delicious. Low at a great distance, so it is ideal for travelling with children. I recommend it in all directions.

  • Smallmouth is a beach which is quite close to capital, can be reached very easy public transport, if you are a foreigner and you want to see how we are Dominicans of lower class (most of us) is is a good option. of those pecaitos come very rich fried they are of death, the beach is a nice looking sand beach towards the sea, the rest need to take care of her a little bit to highlight the beauty itself!
