The beach has a lot of algae's in the water and this algae's are stranding every day to the beach. The beach is not well maintained and some owners don't clean this beach daily.

Anytime I want to go to a close beach I go to Juan Dolio. Just 45 minutes away from Santo Domingo. Not as pretty as Bavaro beach but for sure worth a visit.

We stayed at Emotions by Hodelpa and had a wonderful visit. The hotel staff was very kind, especially our concierge, Bancer. He was very helpful in getting us transportation to visit Santo Domingo and got my husband and son a fishing trip. He was great!

Access to the ocean is often rocky and thus dangerous. Sometimes ppl harass you offering fish, fruits or other products. We have to say most Dominicans are very friendly. Yet some push you too frequently. The sand is not white but more light-brown & not...More

Large expanse of white sand beaches. Knowledgeable bartenders and friendly staff. Dancing Salsa and Meringue became a lot easier with each successive beer.
