Rio San Juan's beaches promote a romantic atmosphere thanks to their quiet nature, soft sands, and gently rolling waves. Because this town is not a top tourist destination, it is easy to find stretches of sand which are nearly deserted, which warrants a word of caution about swimming alone.
You will discover a large number of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Click on the name of the beach for more detail concerning that specific beach.
Rogelio Beach: Backed by one of Bahia Principe's all-inclusive resorts, Rogelio Beach is quiet and clean, if not crowded by resort guests. The beach serves as a nice locale to lay out and soak up some sun as well as splash around in the calm surf.
A second option to consider is Grande Beach. The sands of Grande Beach are a soft pink color, and the beach is lined with trees in a way that keeps the beach pretty shady.
Preciosa Beach: Just before the more popular Playa Grande in Cabarera is Playa Preciousa. This quiet stretch of sand is often overlooked despite the stunning views.
