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.

Situated in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, west of Guayacanes, Caribe Beach is on the East coast of Hispaniola. You might think about stopping by even if you are not staying very close. Families and groups of friends who decide to check out this beach can make the most of their relaxation time without having to wander too far from civilization.

Amenities and Ambiance

Speckled with coconut palm trees and beach chairs, Caribe Beach features powder soft white sand and shining topaz waters.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available.

Other Beaches

Another sun-drenched spot to consider is Boca Chica, located seven and a half miles to the west-northwest. Boca Chica is a haven for social butterflies and party goers, as well as families. The shallow, calm waters and sugary white beach are perfect for children and adults, while the local bars and singles crowds are strictly adults-only. Whatever your age, Boca Chica has plenty of activities and attractions to suit any taste.

Perhaps Caribe Beach is the most convenient coastline for you to visit, but some travelers itch to explore more; in which case you should keep looking for a beach or natural attraction that suits your vacation style.
