Las Terrenas Beach
The reason is Las Terrenas beach stretching for a mile on either side of the town. What an incredible place Las Terrenas beach is, with its ribbon of cafe au lait sand
lined with coconut palms. It's an ideal blend of sand, surf and shade.
It's the ideal situation for windsurfers, sunfish and small catamarans but only a few of them are on the water.`
Under the mid-day sun the light brown sand isn't as eye-squinting as white would be, so it's easier to appreciate the remarkable clarity of the water.
Beds of eelgrass growing just offshore often small schools of feeding bonefish within easy wading distance of shore.
Casual restaurants, many with outdoor dining, are plentiful here, many of which are owned by expats from Europe (especially France) and North America.
For activities, Las Terrenas town has several small malls, a good variety of restaurants and discos for nighttime entertainment.
