Caribe Beach

Caribe Beach, also known as Embassy Beach, is located near Boca Chica. The quiet inlet is flanked by resort properties that keep the beach relatively busy with tourists. When the wind picks up and the waves start crashing on the shore, local surfers come out of the wood works to put on a show.

Located in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, west of Guayacanes, Caribe Beach is on the East edge of Hispaniola. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. A surprisingly wide range of visitors end up loving Caribe Beach; it's not too far off the beaten path, plus it's usually not over-crowded. If you're not fond of the atmosphere and empty, quiet beaches, but don't want to be inundated with noisy crowds, this beach might be the perfect spot to spend a few hours.

How to Access The Beach
From Boca Chica, take Autopista de Este east for about ten minutes to get to Caribe Beach. There is a parking lot right off the road.
