Playa Luperon Beach
Playa Luperon Beach in Puerto Plata is a 1km stretch of golden sand beach, located at the entrance of Luperon Bay – the most important natural harbor in the island, and perhaps the Caribbean.
This beach now feels secluded, with very few visitors; it used to be very active in the years when the Luperon Beach Resort was operating. The resort now sits as a timeless sentinel guarding the beautiful landscape.
The beach is a light golden sand, creating a perfect contrast with the lush green tropical palms and the turquoise blue waters teeming with coral and marine life.
