• From La Romana to Bayahibe

    Bayahíbe

    If you have chosen this part of the island to spend the holidays of your dreams in Dominican Republic, the trip to La Romana-Bayahibe Bay is just a short stroll.

    Bayahibe is a small fishing village which has one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, and although it has a budding nightlife, tourists invade the area with the intention of taste their fantastic dishes of seafood and fish, and a more relaxed Caribbean atmosphere.

    We are in Altagracia, a province located about 20 kilometers from La Romana. At the East National Park, the natural and scenic charm of Bayahibe is more than warranted.

    In fact, the village of about 3,000 inhabitants, hidden inlets and marvellous coves where you can enjoy the more seaworthy  atmosphere and the more crystalline waters of all the Caribbean. All next to Saona Island and Catalina Island, where we can go and make a delightful visit with little boats or catamarans.

    But if there is something we can do in this extraordinary Dominican Bay is to stroll through its streets and enjoy a multitude of artisanal stands where you will find all types of handicrafts: wood, paints, beads, sculptures… a colorful walk with all the flavor of the Caribbean.

    Also, for those who loves diving, don’t let go the chance because here are some of the most authentic seabed of the area and is worth a curious immersion; after diving nothing as enjoy some cool seafood prepared in one of the restaurants in the area.
