Reached by boat from Las Galeras–or a longer hiking journey–and a popular tour stop, Playa Frontón’s stunning shoreline is a sight for sore eyes. Its brilliant fine white sand sits at the foot of a 90 meter (300-foot) metamorphic, rocky cliff, with its shoreline dotted with bright green coconut trees. Popular for rock-climbing and snorkeling because of its coral and urchin-filled turquoise waters, Playa Frontón has been the site of international “Survivor” series episodes. You’ll see that it’s no surprise, given its stunning beach scenery and its mysterious caves.
