Caleton Beach

An ideal beach to enjoy a day with the family

Undoubtedly, the Dominican Republic is a dream tourist destination for all those who visit it. Its fabulous tropical climate, beautiful beaches and a wide range of leisure and gastronomy make it a perfect place to enjoy a family vacation.

Speaking of beaches, if you are looking for one in which to spend a day of sun, sea and fine sand with your loved ones, Caletón beach is a highly recommended option. In fact, it is one of the most famous public beaches in the area, with crystal-clear water, white sand and palm trees that create an atmosphere of tropical paradise that leaves no one indifferent. In addition, it has several attractions that add even more charm to the visit.

Caletón beach is a family beach, ideal for spending a day with children exploring, snorkeling or discovering the delicious local gastronomy in one of the nearby restaurants and beach bars, which offer fresh Dominican-style seafood and fish dishes near the Gran Bahía Príncipe hotel.

Characteristics of Caletón beach

Caletón Beach has characteristics that make it a perfect destination for families. The transparency of its waters, the fine white sand on the ground and a fantastic view of palm trees and mangroves create a fascinating image that invites you to spend the day. It also has a natural pool and the spectacular Gri Gri Lagoon, where you can snorkel and observe the marine life that populates this area.

The truth is that Caletón beach is quite small compared to other beaches, such as Punta Cana. It is only 100 meters long, and its crescent-shaped cove makes it seem even narrower. Although this does not detract from its attractiveness, it enhances even more the charms of this place. In addition, being a quiet area with gentle waves, children can swim and enjoy the water safely.

Another thing that makes this beautiful public beach special is the collection of sculpted rocks in the shape of human heads, which are found on the northwest side of the bay.

The Caves of the Golondrinas

One of the highlights if you visit Caletón beach are the Golondrinas Caves, in the town of San Juan river, just a few minutes away by car. It is a system of subway caverns where you can enjoy an impressive natural spectacle, observing the stalactites and stalagmites that create amazing shapes.

In addition, inside the Golondrinas Cave there is a subway lagoon that creates an overwhelming and fascinating environment, and in which you can dive.

All this, together with its location near the Gran Bahía Príncipe hotel and its panoramic views of the rocks and the sea, make Caletón beach a sensational, inexpensive and accessible getaway for family activities.
