I loved this beach so much. The view is breath-taking, I enjoyed that it was small, the water was crystal clear. I enjoyed the nearby restaurant and the fried Parrot Fish- very delicious. I enjoyed the tour around the beach. Everything was affordable- especially the...More

Went to this beach on a tour. Beautiful. Peaceful. Guys on the beach made us drinks for $5 US - coconut with rum, pineapple (crushed with rum) - very good. We did some swimming, snorkeling, relaxing. Beautiful spot for picture taking.

This is an ok beach. There are vendors who will try to sell you food and other souvenirs at an extremely high price. Not worth.

Worst beach in the tropics I have ever seen. The greenery around it is otherwise beautiful. Do not come here if you want to see a white sand, tropical paradise like Punta Cana. Also, expect lots of sand fleas.

Not much to say. It´s the perfect excursion when being on the north coast in the Dominican rep. Safe, picturesque, and a great lunch (we had deep fried platanas with parrot fish). Nice people, clean water, safe swimming/snorkeling, laid back feeling.

We visited Playa Caleton this past December. Our specific goal was a sunset walk on the beach, and this one was perfect. It's soft sand is in a gentle arch around a natural coral lagoon. The protected entrance from the open Atlantic Ocean gives this...More

Is there taxi's or public transportation that bring you to the beach and back from Grand Bahia Principe SJ? If so would is the average rate? I'm not looking for an excursion, I just want to get there and do my own thing. Roge
