Bayahibe is a small fishing village surrounded by the Caribbean Sea southeast of La Romana and is where the Cotubanamá National Park begins. It has multiple beaches on its coast, including Dominicus Beach, certified as Blue Flag and several beaches of endless beaches in the Catalina and Saona Islands.
It is a quiet town, where you can see locals make their daily lives. The town of Bayahibe retains its Dominican flavor, from its local restaurants and bars to its street craft stalls and fishermen who bring fish every day.
From the port of Bayahibe, boats leave on excursions to Saona and Catalina, two islands that certainly deserve the visit of all visitors to the Dominican Republic. They are virgin islands, surrounded by transparent waters and perfect for lovers of the beach, nature and spectacular landscapes. Catalina is also a very well known spot for diving and snorkeling.
Apart from its coastal life, the streets of Bayahibe have a lot of history and architecture, with pastel-colored wooden houses, iconic churches and Taino caves full of mystery and springs within the Cotubanamá National Park.
