Grand Laguna Beach: The beach itself features a slight slope, with tan colored sand, light foliage, and rocky edges. The water, which is turquoise in hue, is just rough enough that watersports can be a thing of excitement.

Another place worth considering is Encuentro Beach. There is plenty of parking at this easily accessible beach.

Kite Beach: Kite Beach is located along the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The beach is so named because of it's mid-grade waves and constant wind, which are favorable kite boarding conditions.
