Bahoruco Beach

Bahoruco Beach is located on the south coast of the Dominican Republic, set right in front of the popular Barcelo Bahuruco Resort. Many of the beach's visitors are guests of the resort, but those who are not enjoy the well kept shore that is cleaned regularly in order to attract tourists.

Located in the Western side of the Dominican Republic, Bahoruco Beach is on the East coast of the Dominican Republic. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying in the vicinity. Do you dream of finding a beach tucked into an untouched part of town? Many visitors seek a beach that isn't packed full of hotel guests; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches like Bahoruco Beach allow you much more room to spread out and feel comfortable.

How to Access The Beach
You can drive to Bahoruco Beach on Carretera Barahona-Paraiso, which runs parallel to this shore. An eastbound exit road takes you directly to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Palm trees line the white, sandy shores of Bahoruco Beach. The waters are a stunning topaz, clear, and calm, and a few rocks on the beach give it a rugged feel.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

If you go for sunny days that bring guests a tranquil environment, then a good choice for you is Bahoruco Beach; it's hidden away in a more rural section of the region.
