Pueblito Beach Puerto Plata is like the hidden gem of the North, still unexplored by many that only recognize its cute name (little town) but haven’t yet ventured into its beautiful scenery and characteristic amenities. Pueblito Beach sits proudly between the beach resorts of Playa Dorada and Costa Dorada, considered the best of the North Coast of DR in terms of all-inclusive resort areas.

The beach in Pueblito is Chaparral, though most will have a hard time using that name. Its neighbors show their magnificent landscape features such as the Blue Jack Tar surrounded by the Playa Dorada golf course on the East, and the Iberostar Costa Dorada on its West.

The small town has an array of buildings where condos are found available for rent or sale, it also has several restaurants, a block of very nice gift shops, and plenty of lounger areas in the golden sand beach stretch. Places such as Le Petit Francois offer a great menu of seafood and other international dishes, including event hosting.

We also recommend Sabor Del Atlantico bar & Restaurant, and the Coco Bar. These are by the beach, while the one inside the Pueblito town is Fefa’s Bar & Restaurant, awesome seafood. We tried a few drinks with mixers and the experience was satisfying, perhaps because the weather was so great and the right amount of visitors created a relaxing atmosphere.

The staff in the restaurants are very friendly, and there’s the casual vendor selling the usual stuff people buy at the beach. Pueblito is part of a long stretch of beach extending from the Malecon Long Beach, Costa Dorada, Playa Dorada, Bergantin and Playa Cangrejo.


Pueblito Beach 360 shows this iconic beach of Puerto Plata, like never before photographed. We flew a Mavic Pro drone to create a stunning 360 degree vista never before seen of El Pueblito, including the Playa Dorada Golf course holes around it and even some nearby resorts.
