Pleasing public beach.

A very appealing alternative at the cusp of the island which is also home to the Luxury Bahia Principe resort. Since this beach faces the mainland it is somewhat shielded and it... read more

For a hotel guest should be nice. At the Hotel vis a vis from the public beach on Cayo Levantado was more relaxed.

A very appealing alternative at the cusp of the island which is also home to the Luxury Bahia Principe resort. Since this beach faces the mainland it is somewhat shielded and it tended not to have the same intensity of waves as the private beach where the Atlantic tides were customarily rougher. For a public facility, we found it commendably... More

Cayo Levantado: perfect place to get a tan and to see dolphins and whales. Excellent to get relaxed and to enjoy the sun, the wind and the beach. Don't forget your sun-blocker, sunglasses and camera!

Stayed at Luxury Bahia Principe Levantado hotel which is located in this island. Beach is beautiful, thought small. Since it is a public beach it gets quite crowded during weekends.

We visited this island as part of a tour from Samana of Los Haitises National Park. The island is, like much of the DR, absolutely stunning and a great place to while away a few hours. The only downside for us was the lunch that was included in our tour was very disappointing. I asked a few folk if we... More

Beach is very nice. Do not pay for the loungers. This is a public beach. Restaurants are private businesses and are not affiliated with the hotel so bring money as you will have to pay for food and drink at the beach. The shuttle to the boat and the boat to the island were part of our hotel package so... More

We were shocked at the amount of plastic bottles and containers floating in the Atlantic on our Catamaran trip - if I had a cent for each one I would be a multi millionaire. This does not refer to the island

We loved the beach! We sat on the little point and watched the waves come and hit each other from all directions. Beautiful clean sand and water. They will bring you drinks to your chair and there is a little restaurant. Only negative is people trying to get you to buy stuff are very persistent if you show any interest,... More
