Bahía de las Aguilas.-
Highlighted by miles of the purest white sand we can find that which to many dominicans is the last ecological treasure of the Dominican Republic: Bahía de las aguilas.

This utopic paradise located in the southwest coast of the country near the haitian border constitutes a natural refuge seldom visited by tourist and locals alike. 

This beach of about 4 miles total length is solely accesible by the way of a back rugged country road which makes the use of a 4X4 vehicule mandatory.

Another option would be to reach it by means of a small fishing boat which can be boarded at one of the nearby villages. What makes this beach stand out from all the other spectacular corners of the DR is the fact that it is virtually inhabited.

 Located in the south coast of Jaragua national park this spot has recently been in the spotlight due to numerous controversies surrounding the domincan government’s desition to concede building rights to several foreing investors.

This measure has aroused the protests of numerous sectors who oppose this initiative based on the allegations that permanent human settlements in this area could damage the endemis flora and fauna (cacti, iguanas, etc).

Why go to bahia de las aguilas? Because it offers the greatness of undisturbed nature in an enviroment not yet contaminated by men.

Only he who has experienced running his feet through this intensely white sand can comprehend the sensation of freedom and purity of being completely away from chaos of everyday life. It is also an ideal place for spending time with friends and making a kind of tourism very different from the one experienced at the big all-inclusive resorts that have come to characterize our country. How to get there? Starting from Santo Domingo we drive westward in the direction of the city of San Cristobal
