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. 


Catalina Island Beach West

You'll find a good group of beaches to choose from in the area. You can click on the name of the beach to read a detailed article concerning that individual beach.

Catalina Island Beach West: Catalina is a secluded beach on uninhabited island off the coast of La Romana. The island is a national park, and kept both clean and undeveloped in order to allow animal life to thrive.

Another alternative for beach-goers to consider 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: Avenida Eladia leads right to the beach where there is a free parking lot.

These examples are merely a few of what's available. To read a more detailed discussion of beaches, follow this link.
