Just 10 miles to the east of La Romana lies the relaxing beach town of Bayahibe. Originally a sleepy fishing village, Bayahibe has retained its laidback atmosphere and has a small, easily walkable downtown area. Visitors to the town will enjoy the colorful buildings, the excellent seafood and the shops sellings artisan crafts.

While the town of Bayahibe is fun to explore and walk around, the real draw is its gorgeous coastline. The beach has soft, nearly white sand that borders clear turquoise water. The clarity of the water makes this an excellent spot for snorkeling and diving, and there is a conveniently located local dive shop where you can rent equipment. Others may choose just to relax on the sand underneath the many palm trees growing around the beach. 

Bayahibe is also a gateway to the nearby island of Saona, located 45 minutes away.

Practical Info

The town of Bayahibe is accessible by car and you can arrive via the Coral highway from the east or highway #3 from the west. A sample taxi fare from La Romana Airport to Bayahibe is about $35.
