Incredible Beaches of the North Coast

There is no denying that one of the major draws of a vacation in the Dominican Republic is the beaches.  The thought of spending your days relaxing with your feet in the sand with the sun warming your body interspersed with trips down to the shoreline to frolic in the surf, swim, and snorkel is certainly a tempting image.  A trip to the North Coast, which features miles upon miles of gorgeous and diverse beaches, allows vacationers to fulfill this fantasy without having to compromise on their chosen accommodations during their trip.

Cabarete

The small beach village of Cabarete is a unique environment, not only because it is quaint and quiet while remaining hip and desirable amongst a younger crowd of travelers, but also because of the lay of the land. The village is shaped in a semi-circle that surrounds the beaches which are laden with sun-kissed, golden sand. Just behind the village is a shockingly blue lagoon. The steady winds make the surf perfect for a number of watersports, but most especially windsurfing.

Cabrera

Though considered by many local islanders to be home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic, Cabrera is often overlooked in favor of some resort towns located nearby.  This bodes well for vacationers who are interested in enjoying their beach days without having to fight the crowds.  The beaches in Cabrera range from calm and shallow for quite a distance into the water, with soft sand on flat grounds, to small, shady coves sandwiched between striking cliffs.  Most of the beaches are safe for swimming, and snorkeling and diving can be done at Cabrera area beaches as well.

Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata is the largest town along the north coast, which lends itself to being one of the largest tourist draws – and this extends to the areas beachfront.  The beaches in Puerto Plata are clean and feature white sands dotted with coconut palms and clear waters.  An off-shore reef formation makes this area a great choice for snorkeling, but other watersports are popular as well.  Despite their popularity, the beaches are relatively uncrowded compared to other top beaches in the Caribbean, especially if you head to Guarapito, which is one of the most quiet and peaceful beaches in the country.

Bavaro/Punta Cana

The Bavaro Punta Cana region curves around the north coast and into the eastern region of the Dominican Republic and remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country.  The beaches are white sand and lined with coconut palms, and feature relatively calm waters.  Though these beaches are often crowded by vacationers, the real draw to the area is all the attractions and sites that the resort town has to offer, from bars and nightclubs to shopping centers which are all located along the beaches.

Samana/Las Terrenas/Las Galeras

The Samana region of the Dominican Republic, which is home to the small towns of Las Terrenas and Las Galeras is a great location for vacationers looking to escape the crowds.  Despite the snowy white sands, crystal clear waters, and gorgeous mountainous vistas, few tourists know about the area.  For this reason, visitors who do visit these beaches should be aware that the undertow can be dangerous, and lifeguards are rarely on duty.  The best way to experience the waters in this area is by participating in a whale watching tour.  Between the months of December and March, whales can often be spotted mating and calving.  Scuba diving is another popular past time in this region, for divers who are experienced in the sport.

Sosua

Sosua is a charming fishing village that has begun to see quite a bit of development in recent years.  The beaches in this area are quite diverse.  Though all are beautiful, with their ubiquitous white sand beaches and clear waters, each is known for different pastimes.  Playa Sousa is popular amongst tourist for its calm swimming waters and beachside vendors, Playa Chiquita is quiet and perfect for a day at the beach when you don’t want to fight the crowds, and Playa Encuentro’s more aggressive surf makes it ideal for surfing, kite boarding, and windsurfing.

Carnival Cruise Lines Announces Construction of Two Cruise Ship Docks just Outside Puerto Plata

Tourism and the Condo/Villa Residency Market on the North Coast Just Got a Huge Boost:

Talk about big news for Cabarete, Sosua, and Puerto Plata, Carnival Cruise Lines in mid-August inked a deal that will significantly enhance the visibility of the “Part Time Residency” tsunami that in recent years has attracted such an interesting mix of expats from Canada, The United States, and Europe. Long known as a favorite destination to enjoy the year round wind sports such as kite boarding and wind surfing, the north coast (Cabarete and Sosua) has for years steadily identified itself as a premier real estate value for retirees and vacation home buyers who want to spend a few months in the tropics out of the cold weather in their home countries.

Tourism minister Francisco Javier Garcia announced that the new cruise ship port would be open before the end of 2014, less than a three year window. Carnival Cruise lines plans a $65 million dollar (US) two-berth port facility in the Bay of Maimon just minutes west of Puerto Plata and only five minutes from the Ocean World tourist attraction that has become one of the best Dolphinarium facilities in the world. This area also has a modern boat marina as well as Las Vegas style hotel/show/restaurant.

Gloria Israel, Carnival’s VP of Port Development said Dufry (duty free shops) would be a joint developer partner. Though financed entirely by the Carnival/Dufry group, port executives anticipate non-Carnival controlled ships utilizing the facility as well further increasing familiarity with this important Dominican residency/tourism market increasingly being sought out my North Americans looking to escape the grind.

Dredging of a cruise ship channel into the bay will precede construction and land purchases have recently been completed for the deal to proceed as planned.

Carnival Cruise Line is the world’s largest cruise ship operator with ten cruise lines that own over 100 ships that visit over 169 ports world wide, an ever expanding universe of connections. The lines include Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn. Carnival and sister ship line Costa each dock at the La Romana port. Construction begins in 2012 and the first cruise ship arrival is scheduled for summer 2014.

Carnival will build and operate the cruise terminal and is expected to have complete control over the ship scheduling, passengers and arrival area. Parking and facilities for the taxis and tour buses will be provided under the terms and procedures set forth by Carnival to maintain an efficient cruise ship port operation. This development is expected to be a significant financial boost for the Puerto Plata region with the construction itself generating numerous jobs that later will be supplanted by new jobs generated to service the ships and visiting passengers.

The port will be prepared to receive two ships with around 2,000 passengers and 500 crew members each at the same time.
Re/Max Coral Bay currently sees a window of opportunity for securing high value low cost properties before natural market forces drive prices higher. Now is the time to look at properties to suit a variety of retirement, second home, and rental investment need and this opportune timing is made even more appealing by the recent expansion of the best gated new villa complex on the north coast, only 15 minutes east of the Puerto Plata airport and located between the two charming towns of Cabarete and Sosua.
