Canto de la Playa beach

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Canto de la Playa is a paradise beach in the very south of Saona island, Dominican Republic. Since the distance from Punta Cana and from La Romana is maximal, only limited number of tours get here. So there are just a few people here. There is some tourist infrastructure in the west end of the beach, so the main crowd is here. But if you walk to the left, you will find an endless wild beach being almost as beautiful and completely without tourists. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #2 of the "Best beaches in Saona"

Hotels [edit]

There are no hotels near the beach of Canto de la Playa. Several guesthouses (from US$60) can be found on Mano Juan beach, located to the west. It takes a long time to walk there, but it's quite possible anyway.

How to get there [edit]

Main airports in Dominican republic: Punta Cana international airport (PUJ), Santo Domingo international airport (SDQ) and Puerto Plata international airport (POP).

It is convenient to use a taxi, which is relatively inexpensive. For example, a trip from south to north of the country can cost $100.

To move between the small towns you may use minibuses (shuttle buses). Locals call them gua-gua. One ride costs a few dollars. Bus stations are called parada.

There is also good bus transport system in the country. We recommend Caribe Tours and Metro companies. Buses are brand new, and travel from one end of the country to another will cost about $10.

Though all prices given above are in U.S. dollars, it is better to have local money (peso) when traveling around the country.

When to go [edit]

Feel free to relax in Dominicana any time of year. The sea is warmest in summer, but the heat is the most intense as well. And there is also a hurricane season from June to October. On the other side, the winter weather is more comfortable, but seawater at the northern coast is too cold that time.
