Beautiful public beach

This I a beautiful beach with rock cliffs on the end. The water is calmer then in the resort area. The beach is slowly being taken by resorts, which is sad. There is minimal parking and it is a hike to the beach from parking.

Beautiful Beach, white sand and plenty of amenities
Aug 2021 • Couples
Our all-inclusive resort’s beach had plenty of seaweed so the locals recommended Macao Beach. It was a 30 minute ride from our hotel and it was well worth it. There are restaurants on the beach and it is open to the public. You can choose to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas for a small fee but that is totally optional. It was a pleasant day to swim in the warm blue ocean!

Great place for beginners; horrifying beach care and restaurant hygiene
Aug 2021 • Couples
Cons:
- tons of seaweed scattered all over the shore and water, which prevented me from surfing (it got caught up in my leash)
- horrible ecological preservation, really a crime against nature: just as much litter on the grass area as seaweed on the beach
- Transfer is a bit pricy. A more logical solution would be to rent a car and drive there by yourself, especially when planning on surfing there more than once.
- poor hygiene standards of the restaurant employees; french fries were half raw; also prices for the food seemed too high for me

Pros:
- fair rent and great options of high quality boards
- owners and employees left a very positive first impression to me. Communication and social skills are impeccable
- shack grill's fish snack was tasty, i recommend the fileto de doredo for those who like fried fish

Nice beach!!
Jul 2021 • Couples
This beach was beautiful despite it being heavy seaweed season. They have done a good job clearing it off of the beach. The water is still very murky due to the seaweed but we had a wonderful time.
If you choose to use Uber be aware that they are not always around this area. The taxi wanted to charge us $35 compared to Uber which was $12 but we did have to wait for about 25-30 min for an Uber to be in the area.
There are chairs/loungers and umbrellas to hire but if you don’t mind sitting on a towel I would save yourself to money and find a palm tree to sit under. We left our belongings on the beach while swimming and we kept an eye on them without any issue.

I am giving it a negative rating due to teh vendors on teh beach not teh beach itself
Jun 2021
We made it to this beautiful beach from a Buggy excursion. The beach itself is clean, calm and beautiful. I would not go there alone because I would be afraid for my life. Many Haitian vendors in your face tryin to sell you everything falsified in dollars. They kept telling us to leave our stuff while we bathed....mnmm first sign not to leave your stuff. Many kids asking for your stuff and your shoes. They are not even Dominicans. There is a full blown scam happening here. They will try to give you flowers, birds and iguanas for pics and of course charge your dollars. $10 Pina Coladas....its ridiculous how money hungry these people have become to the point you cant even enjoy this beach....you are more afraid for yourself and your stuff.

Beach is overrun by locals trying to force you to buy their items. You cannot relax. Beautiful beach but very disappointed in experience. They hustle you and badger you to death.
