Real Beach

Real Beach is set on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, in a busy part of the island. Because the beach is surrounded by apartment buildings and hotel properties, the beach can get busy, so it is wise to arrive early to stake your claim.

Set in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, east of Guayacanes, Real Beach is on the East edge of Hispaniola. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Those of you who want the best of both worlds——a sense of seclusion, but the option for activity—— should pay a visit to Real Beach. It's not the type of beach that gets packed every day, but it's not totally devoid of people either.

How to Access The Beach
Real Beach is located off Caretta Nueva.

Amenities and Ambiance

This beach forms into a half moon shape. It has white sand and turquoise waters, and is dotted by coconut palms. An apartment complex separates the shore from the nearest road.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
