This little beach is a hidden gem! Great for families. Lots of small hotels and restaurants close to the beach.

Beautiful beach, not very wide, but almost empty even on holidays. Has enough little nooks to give some privacy. Seems to be popular with locals.

Playa Bonita & Playa Coson which are right next to each other, gorgeous beautiful beaches that stretch on forever. There is a luxury hotel on Bonita but not much development other than that.

Playa Bonita is behind some luxury condominiums and hotels. It's definitely built up and my favorite kinds of beaches are remote. This was pretty enough and definitely much nicer than what I'm used to regularly which is the Jersey Shore. Don't get me wrong, we've...More

We visited Playa Bonita as it was suggested to us we need to see. Its a beautiful beach and the area is beautiful. It is a little out of the way though.

This beach is great for surfing but not so much for swimming. There is a nice beach walk with benches to sit and watch the surfers riding the waves - you can also rent a board. A handful of small restaurants offer everything you need.

This is a very serene beach just off the main areas of Las Terrenas. Perfect to enjoy the atmosphere.

Cleanest beach in the DR, probably because of the condo units there. Only beach we found that was raked each evening. No trash at all!!

Hello: I would say you could have a decent meal from RD$500 to RD$800 per person = US$10 to $15 in any of the restaurants around. Regards, Carlos

nope, typically good for surfing but too many waves keep water agitated. a section of the beach (near the point) has no waves, but also nothing underwater worth looking at. I suspect getting closer to the 2 little islands... More
