    Stunning beach! Quiet, with calm and still water that's different shades of turqouise, and clear all the way down to the bottom!

    Had a lot of fun along this beach with family. Found a quiet spot to hang some hammocks from. Mangroves and tidal pools had a good variety of tropical fish and hermit crabs to keep kids busy for hours. Beautiful calm water

    This beach has it all: plenty of space, a beautiful beach with trees to keep you from getting too warm/sunburnt, and several fun bar/resaurants.

    There are many great beaches in Las Terranas, but this is a truly wonderful one. This is mainly because a river winds its way through palm trees to the sea, and the landscape is absolutely stunning. A photographer’s dream.

    There are a couple of good tavernas on the beach.

    The sea can be rough here, and there’s a bit of an undertow, so it might not be good for little children. But if you just jump around in the shallows, it’s absolutely fine.

    It is near by the Albachiara Hotel and there are plenty of bars and restaurants facing this beach. I do not recommend Las Terrenas Beach, but this one is beautiful! Make sure to carry your repellent and drinking water because you can find mosquitoes in the whole town 🦟 and the bottled water is very expensive in Las Terrenas (the regular price is RD$15 or RD$20 for 16oz but in Las Terrenas you will find it at RD$50 and RD$60) if you guys get thirsty you will have to buy several bottles cause one wont be enough for more than one person. If coming with children maybe you could bring mosquito nest for the crib, just in case. (I didn’t have to use mine but you never know)

    Good road surface. Not so much traffic. Breathtaking views as you drive in the direction of Nagua. The mirador just before Las Terrenas smells bad.

    There is an area for surfing if the waves cooperate but I mostly enjoy the nice walking path all along this pretty beach and all the beachside restaurants and bars.

    Small connected restaurant along the water. Beautiful atmosphere and a great variety of cuisine to choose from. Anyone can find something they like here. Prices tend to be very reasonable.

    My daughter and I had a great experience with the whole team at Rancho Playa. It was a beautiful ride through the jungle to the beautiful deserted beaches! Our guide gave us a tour and showed us all the beautiful cocoa, coffee, basil, mint, banana,etc trees. Stunning. Would certainly recommend if you are in the Terrenas area. Look forward to returning.

    I booked two excursions and Nicolas accommodated everything wonderfully despite the weather. The ATV was my absolute favorite it was insanely good exactly what we were looking to do. Simply amazing !!! Our tour guide Rafael was unbelievably good super friendly and entertaining at all times. We did the catamaran the next day and although the weather wasn’t in our favor the tour guide Bruno made it so much fun ! Nicolas txt me through out the excursions and made sure everything was going well. I really loved it and so did my guest. Thank you Nicolas tours. You guys were amazing. If you are planning a trip to las terrenas Nicolas tours is the way to go.

    The team at The Dive Academy was amazing. The equipment they provided was top-notch, the instructors were very knowledgeable, and Audry, Paul, and the rest of the team were great to dive with. We felt safe and watched over every step of the way. My father and I had wonderful dives and even got to go to some never seen commercially sites that were very pristine. I would absolutely recommend The Dive Academy to any non-experienced or experienced divers (us) that are headed to Las Terrenas.

    I can't say enough about this excursion!!! So amazing to see the whales for the very first time. Stephanie your tour was the highlight of our vacation and we can't thank you enough! It was also great we were able to communicate as well. I know you commented your English wasn't that great but it was just fine. I however am going to take this year to learn some Spanish so I am better prepared to communicate when we arrive next year. Thanks again for all your knowledge and this opportunity so see the Whales. Maybe we will see you next year!! Thanks again. Best regards. Ken and Tina Waite
