Small yet photogenic, this white pebble stone beach is most popular with surfers for its big swells and with fishermen who head out daily, while the undertow keeps the swimmers away. It’s worth a stop for a stroll and scenic views of Barahona’s coastline.
Barahona is a prime destination for serious surfers. The recommended beaches are Barranca, Bahoruco, Ciénaga, San Rafael, Paraíso and Los Patos. Several surfing events organized by the Dominican Surfers Federation are held there.
