This was prettiest beach on our visit! Quiet, sandy bottom, small waves and turquoise water. Bring bag cooler as no restaurants were open on day that we went.

Excellent beach for spending the day. Is not very accesible but is worth it. We went all the way to the end to a little shack that offer fried fish and lobster. Very rustic but good food.

I suggest you ask on the Las Terrenas forum. You'll get answers from people who live in the area. I was there once only for sunset and it was super calm in the east part, but because of trade winds, it may depend on the... More

Hello: I would say you could have a decent meal from RD$500 to RD$800 per person = US$10 to $15 in any of the restaurants around. Regards, Carlos
