Public beach, Playa Bayahibe
As I mentioned before on the beach at the hotel there were a lot of seagrasses offshore during our visit. Luckily the hotels are very fast at cleaning this off so it is not that disturbing, but we were curious about other beaches as well.
So we decided to go to the south part of the island and check out the quality of the sandy shores there.
Looking into the offer of the tour operators we have found a pearl, the public beach of Playa Bayahibe. From here you can make an excursion to Saona, but staying in this local paradise was the best we could do.
This is an excellent beach with fine white sand. Calm and turquoise blue sea. Huge space to enjoy this Caribbean beauty. There were a lot of local food stalls selling fresh see fruits, coconuts and local musicians came to our table playing the guitar.
La Romana, Vegafina Cigarfabric
On the way home, we stopped at the Vegafina Cigarfabric. VegaFina takes its name from the “vegas finas”, or fine plains, where sunshine, moisture and soil composition perfectly combine to allow the growth of the most exclusive tobacco leaves. On the tour, we could witness how the world’s best considered premium cigars were made by hand.
