La Romana Attractions

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'll find a good group of beaches to consider in the area. Just click on each beach name for a detailed guide to that particular stretch of sand.

Catalina Island Beach West: Catalina is reachable only by boat.

A second place 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: Dominicus Beach is a white sand beach lined with brush and palm trees. The waters are a calm teal, inviting visitors in to test it out.

La Romana is home to additional beach choices. You can get more information here.
