Playa Dominicalito

This picturesque beach is a hot spot for traveling photographers near and far. The sunsets that bless these shores are worth a thousand words, and more. The North end of the beach is Las Rocas Amancio where there is a group of rock formations that shapes into a protective barrier against the crashing waves. The rocks create monumental water shows for onlookers to enjoy. As you witness the recurring rhythms of the waves coming in, appreciate the sheer power of water, the ocean and Mother Nature. A great way to get in touch with pure energy that is found along the coast.

About Playa Dominicalito

Playa Dominicalito

The southern end of the beach has more rocks jetting out from the coast  and a singular tree can be found on the tip of what becomes as island at high tide. ‘Arbolito’, the little tree that could, has withstood the tests of time and when high tide comes the rocks that connect the tree to the shore are submerged in the water and the tree looks as if it were coming from the ocean.

This bay forms the perfect natural harbor where boats anchor over night, and fishing boats mean fresh fish! In fact you can watch fishing boats come in from the ocean, be the first to get a glimpse of the catch of the day, or from the shores, try your hand at sports fishing, and who knows you may just catch a snook, red snapper, bass, or rooster fish.

Of course saving best for last, this beach is known by locals who like to cut up the waves. Surf at this beach at mid and high tide is perfect. However, you will want to surf towards the center of the bay, as there is a rocky bottom that shows itself at low tide. Truly, this beach has it all, it is great for walking at low tide, boogie boarding, SUP, kayak, surfing, and fishing. Additionally, there is a shaded area and places to hang a hammock to watch the changing tides. You will be amazed how the beach is transformed in a matter of hours.
