Just ten minutes’ drive east from Barahona city, this brilliant white pebble stone stretch is the safest of all the beaches in the province, offering a turquoise sea devoid of waves. There are several food and drink booths, as well as palapa-shaded seating areas if you choose to just relax by the water. The name of this beach is said to originate from the hot sand and stones that can burn your feet if you walk barefoot along this panoramic shore. But don’t worry–there’s a wooden walkway from the parking area all the way to the beach.
