“One of the best beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a must see beach for people travelling to Las Terrenas. There are several restaurants and small boutique hotels that make up Playa Bonita. Its has a pedestrian path made of pavers, and the beach is lined with palm trees. There is a small rock formation to the right of the beach and more restaurants to the left. Its a very pretty area with easy beach access and plenty of beach for walking.

“It's all in the name”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Playa Bonita, which means pretty beach is a beautiful beach with soft sand and an amazing blue sea. It has a few and small waves but nothing you can't handle. We swam near Acaya Hotel where we could had a few beers between swims.

“Great Beach, Awesome Villas!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We love this beach area.
We go there at leat 1 per year.
We love the villas in that area, speciall VILLA CLARA INES and CASA ANA,.

What we love about this beach is that you have areas with lots of waves for surfing, and then few steps ahead VERY CALM for kids!
Also there is a peatonal boulevard that we loved walking after diner.. very romantic!

“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Fantastic beach.....Big waves can cause the sand area to be small, but the beauty of the beach is breathtaking.

“The Beach is Great, but Walk around the Point”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

We stayed at a hotel in Playa Bonita and quickly discovered if you walk west, to the end of the road and around the point, the beach is wider with less wind and waves. This is where we spent HOURS everyday.
