Caleta Beach

Caleta Beach is located in La Romana on the south coast of the Dominican Republic. The beach is a small little stretch of beach that locals use for boating, but it also calm enough for swimming.

Located along the southern outskirts of La Romana, Caleta Beach is on the East coast of Hispaniola. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities may really like a visit to Caleta Beach. It's not the type of beach that gets packed every day, but it's not dead and empty either.

How to Access The Beach
Caretta la Caleta runs right alongside Caleta Beach. Simply park in the sand and head to the shore.

Amenities and Ambiance

Caleta Beach forms a little curve into the coast and is lined with trees. The sand is tan colored and quiet soft, while the waters are a mesmerizing turquoise.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

Caleta Beach provides an angelic and serene place to escape, especially since the region surrounding the beach is far from urbanized.
