Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Snorkel, swim, and sunbathe at Key Paradise, a tropical oasis of the Caribbean Sea. Crystal clear calm waters and luscious white sand make the small island a great snorkeling location, which has a high underwater visibility. Bring a waterproof camera and take pictures of exotically colored fish, seashells, and a healthy reef system. You'll also find a bar on the island serving refreshing drinks including rum and fruit punches. Gain access with a boat from Puerto Plata and bring plenty of sunscreen as there's minimal shade on the island.

  • This was an amazing excursion. Food and beverages on the boat. Lunch and beach time at the end. Paradise sandbar in the middle of the Atlantic. I can't say enough about this trip. Worth every penny.  more »
  • The place has to get 5 stars. Don't think about spending money or time to get there just go and see it your self. It is not in the middle of the ocean and yes you can see the shore and mountains from the main island. Be aware of that. I had a great day there.
  • Nice plays, but to crowded.
