Good beach overall. Not the best, but if you find a cheap way to go, it's not that far from the Capital.

Not the white sand area of DR but this is a beach where you can walk for miles. Very long, most of it is clean. Rough water but definitely still enjoyable.

Cute little beach was clean and not crowded at all. The water was amazingly clear and refreshing, not cold at all. Numerous restaurants to choose from nearby. Didn't encounter any sharp shells or rocks. I even made a friend.. Crabby.

The beach is kept clean by the Hotels and Condos scattered along the beach, the swimming, shelling and the ocean are good along this beach and on the weekend the local people come and enjoy and have good time and all is problem free.

Funny enough that the ocean was full with seaweeds, except in the little bay in the front of my hotel, Caribe Paraiso. The beach itself is nice and clean, hotels and locals doing a good job to keep it decent.

just a relaxing area, If you Walk up the beach past the old(abandoned) Barcelo Capella Resort you will find Coral Costa Caribe Resort which has some of those activities.

the restaurant in Juan Dolio seem to range from inexpensive to average costs, that's $30 to $50 US for two with a couple drinks. i usually pay with pesos, visas or amex and have never had an issue
