Playa los Cuadritos

This large beach is a bit away from the crowds, making it a good choice for those looking for some seclusion. The compromise though is a darker beach and darker water.

Positioned in the vicinity of Santo Domingo, south of Nigua, Playa los Cuadritos is on the South coast of the Dominican Republic. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. The area surrounding the beach is not stuffed with visitors, however, there is still plenty to do here.

Amenities and Ambiance

Playa los Cuadritos has several large rocks and sandbars out in the sea, which helps calm down the water by time it reaches the shore. This makes the beach good for some light swimming and wading.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

Playa los Cuadritos brings visitors an idyllic and relaxing haven, in part because the area surrounding the beach isn't too crowded at all.
