Luxury Playa Bayahibe Holidays

Caribbean dream

Playa Bayahibe

Located on the south-east coast of the Dominican Republic, Playa Bayahibe is a little fishing village that’s grown into a popular away-from-it-all retreat. The narrow stretch of beach is gorgeous, and Blue Flag honoured thanks to its clean, talcum-powder sands. Need a break from sunbathing? Not a problem. Running parallel to the beach are several seafood restaurants for laid-back lunches, plus a few ice-cream spots.

The area is wonderful for snorkelling, so grab your goggles and head out into the shallows to seek out colourful tropical fish. Divers can head out a little further and look for hammerheads, dolphins and turtles. Thrill seekers, meanwhile, can journey north to Anamya Lake and enjoy a three-kilometre-long zip line course.

Don't miss a day trip to Isla Saona - it's got a real 'paradise island' feel. Enjoy a delicious barbecue on the beach, then hunt for starfish on the speedboat ride back.
