Boca Chica, Santo Domingo

(1.6/5 based on 750+ 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.
