Playa Bonita beach

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Playa Bonita is a beach in the northwest of Saona Island, Dominican Republic. There is a pier, as well as a nice area with sunbeds and a bar. There are usually a lot of people, but you can walk aside. However, wild beach is not so good. Due to its location on the west coast, there is never a lot of algae on the coastline. You can get here by boat from the village of Bayahibe. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #4 of the "Best beaches in Saona"

Hotels [edit]

There are no hotels near Playa Bonita beach. Accommodation in your own tent is also not recommended, as mosquitoes will devour you at night.

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.
