Playa Bayahibe beach

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Playa Bayahibe is a small fishing village on the south coast of Dominican Republic. The beach is good enough. But the best area is located near the hotel of Hilton La Romana, so non-guests should buy a day pass. The place is conveniently located to explore the southeast of Dominicana. You can take a boat excursion to the island of Isla Saona, or get by shuttle minibus (gua gua) to Dominicus beach, La Romana or even to Santo Domingo. As for the beach of Playa Dominicus, it can be reached on foot in 30-40 minutes. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This beach ranks #39 of the "Best beaches in Dominican Republic"

Hotels [edit]

Rooms' fares in the hotels of Playa Bayahibe range from US$20 to US$100 per night. Value for money is probably the best in the country!

It is worth to mention the 5-star resort of Hilton La Romana with rooms' rates starting from US$500 per night. The hotel is definitely not worth the money. Instead, you should better think about the beaches of Playa Dominicus or Punta Cana. These may offer great choice of better resorts for less money.

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.
