Playa Limon

Going on for miles, Playa Limon is an incredibly long beach. Yet, for its impressive length, it is nearly completely remote, with only one easily accessible entrance. As long as you are looking for a secluded beach that seemingly never ends with no amenities to speak of, then Playa Limon is as good an option as they get.

Situated in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, 3.5 miles northwest of Las Lisas, Playa Limon is on the East edge of Hispaniola. You might want even if you aren't staying very close.

How to Access The Beach
The easiest way to reach the beach is to travel the highway between Miches and the small community of Las Lisas. When heading East, you will pass the rural town of El Cedro. While exiting the town you will cross the bridge and then a dirt road on the left. A bit further down the road is a major dirt road that heads north. If you take it, you will end up at the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

With such a long coast, it is surprising that the beach stays relatively the same throughout. Backed by a large a small forest, there is absolute privacy from the road. On notable feature is the small river that starts at the beach, and can also be swam in.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Fortunately, the water here is of good snorkeling quality, so grab your gear if you want to do some underwater exploration.

If you prefer beaches which offer visitors a relaxing enclave, then you will want to try Playa Limon; it is hidden away within a more rural section of Hispaniola.
