Dominican Republic Beaches
Long white sand beaches, some uninterrupted for miles, are what first made the Dominican Republic internationally famous.
With the exception of coastal Santo Domingo and the mountainous Dominican cigar-growing capital of Santiago (the country's second largest city) most large cities are now becoming concentrated around the beach areas.
Every section of the Dominican Republic has notable beaches, as this list shows.
