We are based in the little fishing village of Bayahibe on the south coast of the Dominican Republic. See Bayahibe map below.
Bayahibe is 10 minutes from La Romana airport, 15 minutes from La Romana Port (cruise ships), 90 minutes from Santo Domingo airport and 35 minutes from Punta Cana airport on the new Coral Highway.
The calm, clear waters of Bayahibe bay are perfect for flat water paddle boarding. After your SUP session why not:
- take a walk around the village and the second bay (plenty of great photo opportunities)
- relax on Bayahibe beach (bring your snorkel masks)
- or sample some local cuisine at one of the many laid back restaurants and bars around the two bays.
Bayahibe makes a for a great day out!
Bayahibe in the evening – sit and view the sunset over the sea from Bayahibe’s new mini-malecon or one of the beach bars. Watch the flickering, distant lights of Casa de Campo and La Romana. Listen to the ocean lap against the shore…
Or go join the lively crowd of expats and Dominicans at the local corner colmado (Super Col Bayahibe – in front of the supermarket). Every evening, between 5:30 – 9pm. Street food on sale.
