Many people find that the best beach for them in the Dominican Republic is one that can be found without being too crowded, though it still offers the opportunity to meet people; Boca Chica is perfect for such travelers.

Located near the capital city of Santo Domingo, Boca Chica is a long stretch of white sand beach. The shallow water is crystal clear and protected by natural coral reefs. Hotels, beach cottages, and concession and vendor stands line the back of the beach.

Peace and quiet is just one offering you'll find at many of the Dominican Republic's beaches, and this sedate vacation style can be had at Boca Chica without taking you too far away. Neither too close nor too far from cities – you'll have everything you need.

For some visitors the level of activity at a beach and its amenities are particularly important attributes. For others, it is the seclusion and the chance to waste away the day on the sand that is the most important thing. No matter what you're looking for, the Dominican Republic has plenty to choose from, and Boca Chica may be perfect for many vacationers.

Whether you're looking for an out of the way spot, or an active beach scene, location is key. You'll find hundreds of beaches in the Caribbean, so your options aren't limited to Boca Chica. With the information presented below, you can decide if this specific beach is best for you

Boca Chica's shallow waters are great for swimming and snorkeling, especially around the coral reefs. Water sport equipment is available at stands along the beach, so visitors should find plenty to keep them busy. A number of restaurants and bars are also within close proximity to Boca Chica, so guests can party from sun up till sun down.

The number of people on the beach is affected by several factors, including the time of day and the time of year. Some of the Dominican Republic's beaches may rarely be crowded, while others are often crowded especially when tourism season is as its peak.

The atmosphere of this beach is a little different from many of the other beaches in the Dominican Republic. A popular destination among tourists and locals, Boca Chica is a crowded beach, especially on weekends. The social scene is very upbeat with plenty to do and see.

If you're looking to explore the island it's easy to take a side trip and see natural attractions during your day at the beach. A perfect example is La Caduta Submarine National Park, which is 7.1 miles to the west of Boca Chica.

If you're interested in learning more about the history of the Dominican Republic there are nearby opportunities. For example El Faro a Col�n is located 17.3 miles to the west of Boca Chica.

Beaches are a great attraction to visit, but there's even more to see during your stay.. The following chart includes some other attractions close to this beach.

JUAN DOLIO

Juan Dolio and its neighbor beach town Guayacanes are for those who seek a couples or family restful vacation but like being able to take many excursions. If you are staying in Juan Dolio, you are equidistant from the culture, shopping and dining and nightlife of Santo Domingo, great beaches, scuba diving and other attractions in La Romana, and just half an hour away from busy Boca Chica. The small towns of Guayacanes and Juan Dolio are set up along four interrupted stretches of road, following the shoreline. Juan Dolio has a boulevard and a main street where most hotels and restaurants are located. So you can walk, jog or cycle in safety here. This destination is perfect for those looking for a quiet escape with the comforts of home

Almost anywhere you could possibly want to go is accessible from the coastal highway which cuts through the town of Juan Dolio and follows the shoreline. Villas Del Mar is an area of Juan Dolio where many restaurants and all-inclusive hotels are located. Going west from Juan Dolio you’ll find the fishing village/beach town of Guayacanes, then the pretty cove-like beach of Playa Caribe, followed by Boca Chica about 20 minutes from Juan Dolio. Santo Domingo is less than a 40 minute drive to the west of Juan Dolio.

Tourists headed for La Romana, that is to the east of Juan Dolio, should stay on the Boulevard that heads straight into the old San Pedro de Macoris highway and not take the expressway (Autovia del Este) that still has stretches under construction. The signage is lacking and confusing.

About 15 minutes further east is the baseball city of San Pedro de Macoris, home town of Sammy Sosa. Shopping is good in San Pedro at the Jumbo store. Another 40 minutes beyond that is the La Romana / Bayahibe area.

Most travelers to the Juan Dolio area will arrive at the Las Americas International Airport, a 30 minute drive. However, some flights are now starting to arrive at the new La Romana airport. This airport is just over an hour’s drive from Juan Dolio. For scheduled flight connections to these two airports, check out the Santo Domingo and La Romana travel pages.

Everybody walks in Juan Dolio. The beach road is quiet and has very little traffic. What traffic it does have is slowed down by dozens of very large speed bumps. Good to remember if you ride a bike! Most hotels here have bicycles on loan to guests. Motoconchos (motorcycle taxis) also cruise the beach road but we don’t recommend using them or the hotel bicycles on the busy highway. Your hotel can help you get a taxi. Rates are usually posted near the entrance of the hotel.

If you’re on a budget, the public buses or guaguas travel east and west on the highway, passing every few minutes. Just stand anywhere by the side of the road and they’ll stop for you

There is nightlife primarily at the hotels but this is not what you would call a “party hearty” destination. Take time out to visit the many restaurants in the area and mingle with the crowd that lives there or commutes in from Santo Domingo, especially on weekends. Drive 20 minutes, and you are at Caribbean Sun restaurant with lively night life, especially on Saturdays. New in the town is upscale bar and restaurant Aura, with its lounges stretching right into the beach for nature and people watching. El Batey disco is popular next to Decameron Hotel. Meringue, salsa and dance beat ‘til all hours. Chocolate Bar, on access road near Decameron and Costa Caribe Coral. Pool tables and international beers on offer.
