A very nice place to walk around and enjoy the weather. During the night the place changes with locals having a very good time. Swing by and have fun!

Sad to see a place that should be gorgeous just left to rot. Too dangerous to visit at night, garbage piling up on shore. I LOVE Santo Domingo and love the DR, but this was unfortunate.

Don’t even bother. It’s noisy, dirty, litter everywhere: the ocean, the trees at the shore, the docks, the sidewalks, uff. There is absolutely nothing to see. Abandon buildings, some hotels and casinos that are not worthy and the traffic is insane, so if you decide...More

Definitely not the best stretch! Go further away from the Zona Colonial and you will see real Santo Domingo night life!!!
