Fodor's Review

This beach is now glorious, especially in the Villas Del Mar area. Its regeneration, which goes for 2½ miles (4 km), included the relocation of more than 14 million cubic feet of nearly white sand. It has led to the town's rebirth; the tourism authority's goal is to turn Juan Dolio into a major Caribbean destination—the next South Beach—with condominium projects that demonstrate style and first-class amenities fit for the international tourists, but this vision has not yet been completely realized. The beach rejuvenation continued to the horseshoe-shape public beach in Playa (Old) Juan Dolio. Although the beach has no public facilities, including toilets, nearby restaurants cater to beach-goers. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: partiers; sunrise; sunset; swimming; walking.
