Los Corales Beach

Lined with bars, restaurants, and shops, the beach is always busy and active but in a good way. It is not overcrowded, but gives off good vibes and you can almost always hear music pumping from one of the business.

Set in Bavaro, Los Corales Beach is on the East coast of Hispaniola. You should consider stopping by whether or not you're staying very close. Los Corales Beach is the kind of shore where everyone from families to honeymooners congregate, and there's lots to see, do, and eat - it's certainly not the place to go to be alone.

Amenities and Ambiance

Los Corales Beach does have public restrooms for your convenience. Additionally, you will have access to chairs and umbrellas, so guests looking for a relaxing spot in the shade will not go leave unhappy. You'll find the waters off-shore to be fit for snorkeling, so grab your gear if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration.

Los Corales Beach and its assortment of comforts happens to be located within an area popular for visitors. With that fact in mind, if you're sure that these amenities can make or break a good time, it'll be an appropriate idea to visit earlier in the morning before most of the crowds do or try a beach further away. If you come later, it's possible you may lose the chance to use all the services that this beach has on site.
