The beaches in the Dominican Republic are some of the most enjoyable sights that you'll find on the island.
Therefore, most guests are delighted that this property is directly on the water, so you won't need to go very far to try a few beach activities.
Of course, since Iberostar Costa Dorada was built directly on, sun bathing is popular with guests staying at this property. For those who are eager for some variety, the following options each offer something a little different. Clicking on each link below allows you to view a detailed page:

The closest option is Long Beach. The waters that wash ashore of Long Beach in Puerto Plata come from the Atlantic Ocean, which means they can be rough and tall at times. Still, the view of the sea from the shore is enough to keep the beach relatively populated during tourist season.
If you're interested in an enjoyable secluded beach, Bergantin Beach might be a good choice. A great public beach (read: free) away from the crowds, Playa Bergantin is favored because of its free access and gorgeous views of the island wrapping around the sea to the west. It's situated just a small hike off.
