One of the DR’s longest white sand beaches lines a series of large resorts in the Bayahíbe Dominicus area, but remains open to all visitors. The most popular, frequented section faces the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus by the landmark black-and-white painted lighthouse-shaped bar. The first beach in the Caribbean to receive Blue Flag certification, Dominicus is popular for swimming in its shallow, turquoise waters, but also for diving, with an abundant reef right off its shore, and no undertow. Nearby restaurants and a series of arts and crafts shacks on the eastern, public edge of the beach complete the picture.
