Pictures of the Beaches/ Playas and Rivers/ Rios around our beautiful country. Dominican Republic has so many beaches, both public and off the beaten trail. Since it is an island and our part is surrounded by water on three sides, we have many waters for people to chose from. The crystal clear waters and also the dark salt waters. White sand and black sand. We have it all. Pictures cannot show the real beauty but they will give you an idea of what our island has to offer.
