All beaches in the D.R. are public. However, CL is a lovely Island and you will have plenty of your own space. Google it, the photos are amazing and should ease your mind.

We just returned. Our personal opinion is we adored the public beach. The private hotel beaches not so much. This is very subjective according to one's needs. Opinions will vary according to the time of year and the number of cruise ships visiting the public beach. There were none at this time and only a few tour groups coming over in the afternoon. We had an entire shaded area to ourselves every day until about 1 PM. Some people are bothered by the beach vendors but we had no problems with them. After a couple of visits they left us alone except to come over and chat about our home countries. I took a small cooler bag with me on this vacation and glad I did. Grabbed cold beers and water from our room fridge and took them with us. Bought excellent lunch from the food stalls most days that we went to the public beach.
