Magante Beach

Protected by a double coral reef, Magante Beach enjoys calm waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Still, this beach is almost always deserted, so it is a great place to go to get away from the crowds of tourists at other beaches.

Located in the Dominican Republic, 0.7 miles north-northeast of Magante, Magante Beach is on the North edge of the Dominican Republic. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying very close. Even active vacationers with jam-packed itineraries will discover advantages to finding a beach that's a long way from the nearest major city; the lovely, less-traveled shores of beaches like Magante Beach allow you much more room to spread out and feel comfortable.

Amenities and Ambiance

The white sand shore of Magante Beach is covered in debris that have washed ashore such as seaweed and dry wood. Coconut palms provide shade as clear, aqua waters continue to break softly into the sand.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline.

If you usually desire beach days which grant a calm place to escape, then you may want to try Magante Beach; it is tucked away in a much quieter sector of the Dominican Republic.
