Redona Beach

Redona Beach is a very large arching cove that can be found on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Despite its exquisite beauty, the journey required to the reach the beach has kept it a hidden gem.

Located in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, 4.6 miles east-northeast of Miches, Redona Beach is on the North East coast of Hispaniola.

Extra space is just one of the perks that comes with finding a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches like Redona Beach let you escape people-watchers and rowdy beachgoers.

How to Access The Beach
When traveling on Route 104 between Miches Las Lisas, there will be a dirt road which only goes to Redona Beach. After leaving Miches heading East, you will eventually come across a small, but concentrated town that abruptly stops on the East end. Also on the East end is a dirt road heading North. That is the road that will take you to the beach.
