Bayahibe is a small town in the province of La Romana. It is on the Caribbean side of the island located on the south-eastern portion of the Dominican Republic. Bayahibe was a small, quaint fishing town, now transformed into a great tourist destinations in the Caribbean. Here you will an option to stay in a private residence, hotels or one of the larger all-inclusive resorts.
What makes Bayahibe one of the best destinations in the Caribbean is that it is an affordable destination easy to get to. From the Santo Domingo Airport to Samana is a simply drive down the southern coast of the Dominican Republic.
All-inclusive resorts offer a great value for the money and allow you to have a stress-free vacation. Once you enter an all-inclusive resort, all your drinks and food are already paid for. Leave your wallet in the room safe and seek out a bar on the beach or by the pool to enjoy one of Dominican Republic’s famous rum drinks or our countries most popular beer (Presidente).
With multiple pools, restaurants, bars, and beach accesses, an all-inclusive can be a great decision for just about anyone (families, groups, friends or couples).
Staying in one of the local hotels or a private residence will allow you a greater opportunity to enjoy the local flavor. You will be able to eat and/or enjoy your favorite glass of rum at a local restaurant or bar. Many of the restaurants and bars have menus in English, but not all. If you have a greater sense of adventure, perhaps this is the option for you.
Divers will find spectacular coral formations and three shipwrecks: the Atlantic Princess, St George and Coco.
Nature enthusiast will find lagoons and wildlife, including a variety of birds. There is much to do, but the inviting, soft white sand beaches are perfect for travelers seeking to relax with a great view of the Caribbean.
There are many public beaches where you can rent a lounge chair for the day for just a few dollars, or you can just bring a towel and relax on the soft white sand of the beach. There will always be a restaurant/bar close by for you to take a break from the Caribbean sun.
One of the best ways to experience the Caribbean is to be on it. You can go fishing; you can take a boat to Catalina Island (a small, uninhabited island) where you can snorkel and enjoy the beauty; or you can enjoy many more activities that are available. There are two additional islands you can visit, but it takes a while by bus to get to the boat so we suggest sticking to Catalina Island.
There are plenty of local bars and restaurants for you to pick from that will be either a short walk or a short taxi ride from the beach, your hotel or your private residence. Many of the smaller restaurants and bars change names and owners frequently so I won’t mention very many by name, but two of my favorites are Las Palmas (for dinner) and Saona Café (for lunch).
Both restaurants have been around for a very long time and they have a menu in Spanish and in English. These are great choices to enjoy the local seafood, rum, music and the culture of the Dominican Republic. Las Palmas is on the beach has great views of the Caribbean, and Saona Café overlooks the boats in the harbor. You can’t go wrong with either of these.
