Playa Dominical

Playa Dominical Review

Long, flat, and rarely crowded, Playa Dominical is good for beachcombing among all the flotsam and jetsam that the surf washes up onto the brown sand. There's shade and parking under palm trees along the dirt road that parallels the beach. Although it lost its Blue Flag status, the water is relatively clean and local businesses make sure things look tidy. Vendors hang up clothes lines of colorful sarongs for sale, and Tortilla Flats restaurant is practically on the beach. Huge waves and dangerous rip currents make it primarily a surfing beach. In high season, flags mark off a relatively safe area for swimming, under the watchful gaze of a professional lifeguard. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking. Best for: surfing, walking.
