Rogelio Beach

Backed by one of Bahia Principe's all-inclusive resorts, Rogelio Beach is quiet and clean, if not crowded by resort guests. The beach serves as a nice locale to lay out and soak up some sun as well as splash around in the calm surf.

Positioned in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, Rogelio Beach is on the North edge of Hispaniola. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. The area surrounding the beach is not very urbanized, however, the beach itself has plenty of appeal.

How to Access The Beach
Rogelio Beach is located down a dirt road off Highway 5.

Amenities and Ambiance

Rogelio Beach features tan colored sand and deep aquamarine waters. The beach is dotted with palm trees, lounge chairs, and umbrellas, and just off shore is a coral reef that protects the coast, keeping strong waves at bay.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
