Fodor's Expert Review Playa Entrada
At almost 2 miles (3 km) long, northeast-facing Playa Entrada is one of the North Coast's longest beaches. and one of the least visited. However, that means the beach is exceptionally pristine and unspoiled, and the site of several movie location shoots. Though technically in La Entrada, it's part of Cabrera. You'll find some shade under the trees. A few beach shacks might be selling cold drinks and Dominican snacks on weekends, but don't depend on it. Near the middle of the beach you'll see a small island that's close enough to swim to; however, the currents here can be fierce, so why chance it. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: solitude; surfing; walking.
