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.

Located in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, Rogelio Beach is on the North coast of Hispaniola. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying very close. The beaches in the Dominican Republic aren't usually known for their peace and quiet, but you'll find Rogelio Beach to be a little calmer than most, making it a good pick for those of you who aren't fond of huge throngs of tourists.

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, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
