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.

Set just outside the heart of the Dominican Republic, 0.7 miles north-northeast of Magante, Magante Beach is on the North coast of the Dominican Republic. You should think about stopping by whether or not you are staying in the immediate vicinity. There are advantages to visiting a beach that hasn't been "discovered" by thousands of tourists; less popular beaches like Magante Beach let you escape people-watchers and rowdy beachgoers.

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.

Please note that public restrooms are not available.

If you find that you enjoy sunny days that offer an idyllic experience, then think about trying out Magante Beach; it is found within a more rural section of the region.
