A town that appeals to tourists looking for a less tourist-y destination, Cabrera still has plenty to keep visitors busy.  It is the natural attractions that stand out the most because the surrounding area is such an eco-friendly destination, with a national park, city park, and several beaches for travelers to look forward to.


Playa Rio San Juan

You'll discover an abundance of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Just click on the name of the beach for a detailed review of that specific beach.

A nice beach that's good for snorkeling is Orchid Bay Beach. With nothing to see but the rocky cliffs to the side, and the sloping coast behind you, looking out into the shimmering sea and feeling the warm sand is the gift that this tropical paradise has to offer visitors. It is small however, and several groups can easily start making the beach crowded.

A second location to consider is El Calento de Dario Beach. El Calento de Dario Beach is one of the Dominican Republic's quieter beaches. Typically, only guests of the nearby resorts spend their days on the beach, so fighting crowds to find a spot in the sand is rarely an issue.

El Breton: El Breton is located off Highway 5 just outside of Cabrera.

Needless to say, you will find a nice selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. To navigate to our detailed guide to beaches, use this link.
