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.

Situated in the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic, east of Guayacanes, Real Beach is on the East edge of Hispaniola. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. The beaches found throughout the Dominican Republic are usually somewhat secluded and quiet, but Real Beach stands out as a pleasant exception to this rule.

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

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.
