Orchid Bay Beach

Tucked into a rocky cove, this tranquil beach offers visitors a chance to escape from urban Dominican Republic while still being just minutes way.

Set in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, 1.0 mile southeast of Cabrera, Orchid Bay Beach is on the Northeast edge of Hispaniola. You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying very close. Orchid Bay Beach is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's perfect for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Most other beaches in Caribya offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but are usually more crowded because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is easily accessible by the coastal road to the east of Route 5.

Amenities and Ambiance

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.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Fortunately, the water here is of good snorkeling quality, so grab your gear if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.
