Home to the famed Caso de Campo resort, La Romana as a town has much to recommend it all on its own.  Each of the area's villages has a unique set-up that is reminiscent of a time in history or a country in Europe and great for exploring, there are two casinos at the resorts, and the natural attractions make it easy to spend your days outdoors.  Of course, you can't overlook the beaches, which are what caused this area to become such a popular destination in the first place. 

Beaches

Catalina Island Beach West

You will discover a good group of beaches to consider visiting in the area. Click on the beach names for more information concerning that specific beach.

Catalina Island Beach West: This little section of beach carved into Catalina Island's west coast features refined sugar soft white sand backed by brush and palm trees. The waters are an unparalleled turquoise.

A second location worth considering is Bayahibe. Set in a town of the same name just 10 miles east of La Romana, the beach at Bayahibe is great for swimming and snorkeling because the waters are so calm, but simply relaxing under the shade of a palm is a popular option as well. Excursions to the pristine islands of Saona and Catalina for snorkeling and diving regularly embark from Bayahibe.

Dominicus Beach: Located on the Domincan Republic's south coast, Playa Dominicus is the first beach on the island to have achieved Blue Flag Beach status, so you can be sure your experience will be a good one. Bring your snorkeling gear, because the calm waters that lack a strong undertow are great for snorkeling.
