Playa Palmera beach

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Playa Palmera is a beach in the west of Saona island, Dominican Republic. The views are scenic, since this is a real tropical paradise with palms. The water is also clear with a comfortable bottom and without algae. Unfortunately, the service is very poor. Daily tour from Bayahibe starts from US$100 per person. In most cases, for the money you will get just a sunbed and cheap rum with cola. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #3 of the "Best beaches in Saona"

Hotels [edit]

There are no hotels near the beach of Playa Palmera. So it's almost impossible to spend a night in this beautiful place. However, there is nothing to do here when the darkness falls.

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.
