With its powder-soft white sands and warm waters, Boca Chica is the ultimate beach resort and at less than half an hour from Santo Domingo, it makes a popular escape from the capital. The main attraction of Boca Chica is its calm, shallow swimming waters, but nearby Catalina Lake is also a hotspot for water sports including water-skiing, wakeboarding and jet skiing, and the coastal lagoon is fringed by a colorful coral reef ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Boca Chica is also renowned for its nightlife, especially during the summer months when the waterfront bars and nightclubs blast music into the early hours, and the party often spills over onto the beach. Alternatively, take a trip to the nearby Matica Island, where the mangrove forests harbor an impressive variety of birdlife, or explore the coast by kayak or on horseback.
Boca Chica is located 25km east of Santo Domingo.
