When you close your eyes and dream of the perfect Caribbean beach, chances are it looks a lot like the one at Casa de Campo Resort and Villas. That is, crystal-clear turquoise blue water gently lapping on pristine white sand dotted with comfortable chaise loungers with a backdrop of palm-trees softly swaying in the breeze.At the heart of Casa de Campo is Minitas Beach, a private sanctuary that’s perfect for soaking up the sun or enjoying sports like snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boating, and so much more. And just beyond our shores, the secluded Catalina and Saona Islands await with even more hidden beaches and lush surroundings to explore.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC BEACHES
Our private Minitas Beach is conveniently located right in the middle of it all, so you never have to go far for a little sun and sand. There’s also plenty to do here, from a variety of watersports, to indulging in a relaxing massage in our open-air pavilion. Not to mention the quintessential Minitas Beach experience, enjoying one of our famous piña coladas served in a fresh, local pineapple. And when you’re feeling like a snack, you can dine at the Beach Club overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
But perhaps the best thing about Minitas Beach is that it’s a private, unspoiled haven with a calm and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for kicking back and relaxing from the comfort of a chaise lounge chair.
Enjoy a different kind of island escape with a quick excursion to beautiful Catalina Island. Just six-square miles in size, the immaculate beaches are perfect for relaxing and the entire island is part of the Parque Nacional del Este, which means the interior is unspoiled and perfect for a leisurely stroll. But the fun isn’t limited to just the land, snorkelers will want to explore the amazing reef teeming with sea life just a short swim from the pier. Kids especially will enjoy the clear, shallow waters of this must-see beach.
Famous for the natural beauty of its beaches, Saona Island is a popular setting for filmmakers searching for the perfect “deserted island”. Part of the government protected Parque National del Este, the seas around the island are rich in sea life with numerous species of tropical fish and birds to see. But the real draw is Palmilla Beach, essentially a natural offshore sandbar perfect for swimming and snorkeling, and marveling at the numerous starfish found in the waist-deep waters.
