Beaches in Rio San Juan

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.

Beach Choices In The Area

You will find an abundance of beaches to consider in and around the area. You can click on each beach name for a detailed guide to that specific beach.

Playa Rio San Juan

Rogelio Beach: Rogelio Beach features tan colored sand and deep aquamarine waters. The beach is dotted with palm trees, lounge chairs, and umbrellas, and just off shore is a coral reef that protects the coast, keeping strong waves at bay.

Another option worth considering is Grande Beach. Set on the Dominican Republic's north coast is Grande Beach, a unique beach in that it is popular for both swimming and surfing. The summer months is when the waters are calm enough that swimmers can enjoy the water without being pummeled by waves, while the winter months are perfect for surfers who want to catch waves of u to 12 feet.

Preciosa Beach: Preciousa Beach is located on the north shore, and as such the aquamarine waters that crash ashore can be too rough for your typical swimmer. Still, the golden sands framed by palm trees and with a view of rugged cliffs make it worth a visit.

The table directly below offers more details on the beaches found in and around the area.
