Playa Minitas beach

Ultimate guide (October 2023)
Playa Minitas is a beach in the east end of La Romana, Dominican Republic. There are a lot of palms ashore, and everything is pretty nice. The breakwater protects from strong waves, while swimming and snorkeling are good enough. The only problem is that this beach is totally overcrowded most of time. However, if you get here during the low season, you will probably like it. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This beach ranks #44 of the "Best beaches in Dominican Republic"

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.
