Quite a few visitors have decided to vacation in the Dominican Republic just for the fabulous beaches that the region is so proud of. Fortunately, Villa Taina is situated directly on the water, so you won't have to go very far to see one of the most naturally beautiful features of the area. Not too far from some of the Dominican Republic's main attractions, but away from the crowded areas, this property provides a good location to enjoy a mix of cool activities. The beach backing up to this destination is usually not too crowded, allowing guests to enjoy a relaxing beach outing.
Of course, since Villa Taina is located right on Cabarete Beach, sun bathing is one of the main attractions here. Cabarete Beach shares a bay with Bozo Beach, which is where the local Kiteboarding school is located.
