In Caleta local people come for having a beer and dance some bachata. In week-ends they are coming with their families for spending a day on the beach. The place could basically be nice but people are very careless and throw waste anywhere. I also picked up a lot of glass pieces from the sand. Be careful if you are... More

the beach is not the best, but there is some water and you can find nice places to eat some fresh fish, have a beer and some chicharrones.

My wife Mo and myself enjoyed the beach. It was clean and beautiful. Children were having fun swimming and catching fish. We came home wearing shorts and a T-shirt. The temperature when we got off the plane was 10. The drive to Guelph is about 45 min and I'm glad we didn't have to drive😁

One of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic. Clear, warm, you feel like you are in a pool

Good place for fresh fish cooked by locals. Wouldn't recommend the beach to spend the whole day. A quick swim is good though.

Caleta is where the local people of La Romana go to spend an afternoon by the water with family or friends, feel the breeze caressing the palm trees, eat delicious fried fish, drink ice cold beers, have a couple of laughs, listening to Bachata, and maybe do some dancing. It is not really a beach where you go swimming or... More

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
