Playa Bonita refers to a one-km stretch of spectacular beach shore about three km to the west of the fishing village and beach town of Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic. The name appropriately translates to 'beautiful beach' because of the long curve of tan sand, scores of swaying coconut trees and an aquamarine surf that is shallower and prettier than at Las Terrenas. Off the coast but well out of swimming distance are several small palm lined islands.
There is no local community in Playa Bonita and the beaches here have far fewer people on them than those at nearby Las Terrenas. There is also far less traffc noise here. By car, Playa Bonita is reachable by a single road that turns off from the highway between Sanchez and Terrenas.
