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.

Located 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 should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by.

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.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. Happily, the off-shore waters are fit for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some gear if you want to see the underwater world.

If you tend to choose shores which offer those who visit a calm experience, then you should enjoy Playa Limon; it's found within a more rural sector of Hispaniola.
