Once you have explored the land why not try exploring the sea. There is just as much history and interesting things to see in our blue waters. There are so many different water sports-activities going on in Dominican Republic. Which is only obvious since it is an island. We have such a diverse shore line here in the country that is sure to please every type of human. Some shores are rough and rocky, covered with broken shells or rocks. There are beaches that have pure white sand and calm clear waters and others that have very dark sand and darker waters both having beaches suitable for swimming. There are cliffs and places where the water crashes into the coral shore where no one in their right minds would ever think of entering.There are places for scuba-diving and  snorkeling both for the novice and expert alike. We have reef diving, good visibility, warm waters, wrecks, caverns and a rich marine life.
Get out, try something different and enjoy!

Try some surfing in Dominican Republic. Surfing is becoming more and more popular over the entire island. Dominican Republic does have a pretty decent surf happening. The average water temperature of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 Celsius) so you do not need a wetsuit. The air temperature is on average in the high 80 degrees Fahrenheit (20¹s Celsius). The sun usually is shining, even when it rains and is cloudy it never lasts a long time. Another good thing is there are no sharks in the area. But the best thing, as always, is the people you will meet while enjoying the surf and sun. The best in the world! surfing picture(new window)
