It is common to find long stretches of unspoiled and uncrowded beaches on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic near Cabrera. After days of writing articles DR Escapes it is time to play Robinson Crusoe on this deserted beach for an afternoon. Even though I have the beach almost to myself, there is still a vendor ready to set up a table, provide some chairs, fry me a chicken dinner and serve me a beer… right on the beach. That’s life in the tropics.
I think that is one of the things I like best about living so close to so many unspoiled beaches. Anytime, night or day, that I need a break there is always a nearby beach waiting to sooth the day’s aggravations or tensions. It is very typical to find many of the local beaches just as deserted as the one you will see in this short video clip… at least on most weekdays. Of course, on weekends you will see more people on the beaches, but rarely is it what you would call crowded on the beaches nearest to Cabrera. Cabrera is just far enough away from the touristy hot spots to remain unspoiled and uncrowded, yet still close enough to allow us to venture over to the tourist towns anytime we want to. Best of both worlds.
