One of the worst beaches. There are more rocks than sand and broken glass everywhere. Go to Bayahibe which is only about 25 minutes away and is breathtaking instead.

Just got back from our So. cruise on the Breeze. Went to Grand Turk, not very large area to explore but had a wonderful time on a snorkeling trip & rays tour. Then to La Romana, where we had another snorkel trip and while the water were nice the dive location left a lot to be desired with trash all... More

I really, really, really wanted to love this place but after much thought, I can't give it a completely positive review. We decided to go here on our cruise stop in La Romana since there is really not much to do at this port and we try to maximize our beach time while we're on vacation. Our 4 year old... More

I have lived this, great diversion for those of us that have a home in casa de campo and want to be with the people since the Resort is a world where you only rub shoulders with the rich. Be vigilant and go with a local and never after dark.

Caleta is definitely a locals beach, with typical Dominican food and ice cold Presidente beer! The beach is quiet, beautiful views, such as of the light house; however, a bit rocky for swimming in most... More

Dominican food are easy to find in this beach. I like the fried fish, yaniqueque and the famous dominican sweet, cheap price for food. Bring sun block and comfortable shoes.

I discovered Playa Caleta in La Romana, a quaint little beach, frequented mostly by locals, a bit rocky, but still a nice place for a picnic and a swim. There are vendors selling freshly caught fish, sausages and "yaniqueques" johnny cakes and of course, serving cold Presidente. We arrived by cab but returned to La Romana town by guagua.
