There are no hotels and resorts near by and that is what makes this beach even more unique.

Don’t expect to find fancy beach bars because you won't.

Many Safari Tours use this beach, that is slowly being recognize among the tourists, as a stop point. You can take a few hours to explore around or just relax on the beach.

But so far it is known as a »local« beach where many Dominicans (especially at weekends) come here and relax, so this is a good chance to get to know them more.

If you wish to stay here for few days, you can find a lot of excellent all inclusive resorts and hotels in El Macao. This fishing village is not far away from Playa Macao.

And for those willing to stay permanently, experience the ultimate Caribbean luxury residential destination, Roco Ki. Opened recently, Roko Ki is home to luxury residences, condominiums, villas and penthouses.

One small tip....

Try the famous »pescado frito«, fried fish-in english. It costs around 10$. Many locals and tourists love this dish and I'm no exception:)
