Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Head down to the southern coast of Hispaniola to find Boca Chica, a popular beach with amenities and natural charm. Take a stroll on the soft white sand before picking your spot along the wide beach, trying out a new beach sport, or simply lying back with a good book. The beach gains protection from a coral reef, meaning that the water remains calm and shallow. These conditions make the beach very popular with families looking for a safe place for young kids to swim. Lining the beach, along with the palms, you'll find plenty of local businesses, including beach resorts, restaurants, and hotels.

  • When you re in Santo Do u have to visit Boca Chica..( a girls mouth) Its a beautiful lively area with a whole pueblo orientated on tourism. Lil shops for beach accesories and 'necessaries'. Restaurants all over. I like the atmosphere. If u wanna feel like a real tourist and wanna enjoy your tourist status its a must to visit the small streets and colorful decorated souvenirshops. Dont miss out on the fresh caught fiah offered on the last street up the hill right across the Beach Entrance. I went there myself very often to avoid the pizzas and heavy meals after a swim. Enjoy!
