Luxurious Beaches – Circled by 1,000 miles of silky white sand, the East Coast welcomes couples with a treasure trove of some of the most immaculate beaches in the Caribbean. Punta Cana’s luxurious resorts overlook secluded beaches that are perfect for couples looking to relax together in the sun, indulge in candlelight dinners on the beach or enjoy a sunset walk along the shores.
Treasures Under the Sea – Romance breezes through the air above radiant turquoise waters that hide shipwrecked mysteries off the coast of Boca Chica and La Romana in the South. Here, couples can scuba dive holding hands through scores of colorful fish and fauna while exploring “The Hickory” and “El Limon” at La Caleta National Underwater Park near the shores of Boca Chica. Seventy feet off the coast of Catalina Island and La Romana, divers admire the history of the oldest Caribbean shipwreck, Captain Kidd’s “Quedagh Merchant.
Majestic Waterfalls – South of Puerto Plata on the North Coast are the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua. Couples can climb to the top of one or more waterfalls and cascade down the water chutes together – or go for the ultimate adrenaline rush and jump off the cliffs into deep pools of water. This series of falls holds 27 thrilling rock pools and waterfalls, a heart-pounding adventure and perfect backdrop for an unforgettable romantic memory.
Whale Watching – Caressed among the Caribbean mountains on the Northeast Coast, the Samaná Peninsula is an exotic eco-adventure hotspot where couples can witness one of the true marvels of the world on a whale-watching tour. Each winter, 3,000 to 5,000 whales migrate to the warm, glittering waters of the Bay of Samaná. The gentle giants swim and sing at close range, providing the ultimate surroundings for a sweet embrace with your loved one.
Kiting Adventures – Cabarete on the North Coast is widely recognized as the “Kiteboarding Capital of the World” for its ideal blend of beaches, winds and waves that combine to create the perfect conditions. Couples can get carried away together as they join in the colorful array of kites scattered throughout the beach, later enjoying moonlit views of the golden sand beach at one of the beach’s delicious restaurants.
