  1. Can’t say I’ve been to any of these Dominican beaches, but I have been to Punta Cana. We stayed at the Melia, which had a private beach, and it was wonderful :)

      That sounds awesome :) I also enjoyed Bavaro beach, nothing against it, but there’s so much more thrill in visiting a secluded beach ;)

      Some of the Dominican republic beaches in the post are quite near to where you stayed, if you happen to be in the area again, I recommend renting a car or hiring a taxi and checking them, including Montana Redonda – the views are breathtaking!

  2. I have spent some time on Playa Sosua and it was a fun time there, where the locals where having a blast on the beach. It was not private but a lots great sights and sounds. I was there on a Saturday and there was a lot of dancing and food/drinks were everywhere. So only go there if you want to hang out with the locals not tourists.

      That’s good to know, thanks for sharing this info :)

      I think there are so many Dominican Republic beaches, that there’s something for every taste. I personally just love being all alone at a secluded beach!

    I keep reading about high crime rates in the D R and warnings about the Zika virus. My daughter and her son want us to go there with her. Are you familiar with any of these concerns?

      Hi Linda,

      there are indeed warnings about Zika virus infected mosquitos in the Dominican Republic. As with all tropical destinations, mosquitos are a problem. Most resorts in the Dominican Republic spray repellent in the evening to keep the mosquitos away from their guests. The usual precautions are advisable.

      As for crime, I think the news are exaggerating the proportions :) Dominicans are among the friendliest people I’ve met and the streets and beaches in the Dominican Republic are much safer than any big city in the Western world.

      Don’t worry too much, if it were really dangerous, there wouldn’t be millions of tourists streaming to visit this Caribbean gem each year!

      I think you’ll regret it more if you don’t go ;)

      Have fun on your trip!

    Playa Rincon have normal access road. You don’t need 4×4 car. We used small Kia piccianto without any issues. Make sure you check/ drive one and second end of this beach and explore Hiden, amazing white sands behind old, blue restaurant (right side of the Rincon beach, pass it and walk right between waves)

      Hey Rob, thanks for the info!

      It’s true that you can drive the DR roads in a normal sedan especially if you choose the full insurance when renting. It’s still much safer and easier to opt for a 4WD, though.

      I don’t remember a restaurant at the right side of Playa Rincon, but maybe that’s due to the fact that I visited it after a scrumptious lunch at the left end where Cano Frio flows into the ocean ;)

      Cheers and happy travels!
