The 5 Most Beautiful Beaches in the Dominican Republic

For a country as beautiful as this, it's hard to pick just five ... but we did it. Here are our top 5 beaches in the Dominican Republic.

Boca Chica

Situated 20 miles east of Santo Domingo, Boca Chica is one of the most famous and popular beaches in the Dominican Republic. It's not hard to see why- superfine white sand leads to turquoise water, tall palms wave lazily in the breeze, and the beach seems to go on forever. Back up from the water, in the town that shares it's name, visitors can stop in on bars, cafés and plenty of local stores. A nearby coral reef breaks incoming waves, so the water is some of the calmest in the country. For this reason, Boca Chica is a a family favorite.
