Playa Las Ballenas – one of three in town beaches of Las Terrenas. Get its name after two whale-shape rocks visible from any spot on the beach. Playa Las Ballenas is around one and a half mile long and goes up to center Las Terrenas. At Playa Las Ballenas you will find bars, restaurants, villas, hotels and a sailing club. At the end of Playa Las Ballenas you will find a spectacular location, where the river is coming into the sea. Here you will find the sailing club as well. Somewhere in the middle, just in front of Hotel Cacao, you can buy fresh fish and lobster, every morning, directly from the local fishermen.
White sand, very walkable, safe, calm warm water also for children and the elderly, protected from the north east trade wind. One of the finest hotels, Playa Colibri, is right on the beach. Fabulous lunches on the beach from the French restaurant next door.
Las Ballenas beach, one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the area and minutes away to “Pueblo de los Pescadores;” the center of night life in town and where most restaurants, supermarkets, bars, discos and other conveniences are located.
