Punta Cana Beach – Dominican Republic by http://surf.adykidd.us/ 28 May 2009

Dominican Republic Beaches

A Virginia DUI Lawyer states their best time was in the wonderful eastern coastal wonderland of Punta Cana. But, no way would we have thought of quick divorce and Dominican Republic synonymous. Yet, lawyers from the “DR” seem to have a corner on that market. If there were one place in the Caribbean we could point you to for inexpensive resorts and sugar-white beaches,

the Dominican Republic would be our destination of choice. It’s romantic! And, it’s the fastest-growing destination in the Caribbean because of the low prices and beautiful terrain. Especially, the Punta Cana area - what a boom!

Canadians have known about the Dominican Republic for years. The make up the bulk of North American tourists. But Americans are now waking up to the bargain and websites are catering to their every need.

Columbus found the Dominican Republic on his very first voyage to the New World. He said it was, “the most beautiful island in the world“. A settlement was founded in 1493 and ruins still remain near Montecristi.

Dominican Republic BeachesThe Dominican Republic is located amongst the islands of Cuba, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico. It is on the isle of Hispaniola (meaning Little Spain), and is divided between Haiti on the west and Dominican Republic on the east - about the size of the state of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. Most of the island interior is sugar cane plantations.

The cool thing is that much of what Columbus saw still remains - a natural, virgin landscape - still unspoiled. And, one-third of the island’s coastline is the awesome beaches, which we’ll review next!

Dominican Republic - BEACH INDEX:

  • Sand - Most beaches are brilliant white, due to the high content of coral/shell.
  • Facilities - DR beaches have full facilities near the tourist centers.
  • Shade - Expect tall coconut palms. Tourist beaches offer umbrellas/shades.
  • Sports - Full service at tourist centers. Sports fishing great in most areas.
  • Notes - best time to visit - late November to April, as humidity is lower, temperature cooler. However, resorts are reporting high volume throughout the year due to the great bargains currently found.
