A small, rocky beach frequented by locals, Playa Caleta gives visitors a more cultural taste of beach life in the Dominican Republic than other beaches in La Romana. You'll enjoy stunning scenery and local cuisine while at Playa Caleta.
This remote beach area comes equipped with stunning scenery, local cuisine and a small bay ideal for swimming. Snorkel equipment may come in handy here, as there are fish and sometimes other sea creatures to see off its shores. There are also many vendors at Playa Caleta who serve fresh fish and other local delicacies like yaniqueques. Bring pesos or be prepared to bargain, as vendors don't always have change for American dollars. Finish off your meal with a refreshingly cold Presidente beer, a favorite brew in the Dominican Republic.
Hop in a cab to get to La Caleta, or take a tour bus. If taking a cab, arrange a time for the driver to pick you up. Otherwise, you may have a hard time getting back to your resort or cruise ship. The beach is quite rocky, so you may want to pack a pair of water shoes to avoid the pain that comes from stepping on sharp rocks.
