Be witness to how the elements of sun, sand, palm trees and people work together for an afternoon full of flavor, merengue and Dominican cuisine. You are invited to discover one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean: the shores in Boca Chica. You can enjoy everything the Caribbean Sea to offer in this unforgettable excursion 4 hours. We will visit the facilities of Bocana Restaurant, where hospitality and warmth accompanies them and allow you to enjoy the facilities at the beach. Boca Chica beach is truly unique. Its waters make up a bay about a kilometer and a half wide. Also, you will see a reef that is approximately 400 meters long and has the form of a giant half circle, extending from one end of the beach to the other. The reef covers the entire surface of the bay constituting a giant natural saltwater pool, whose average depth is one meter. The reef acts as a natural barrier for the Caribbean Sea, so that the waters of the bay are usually very calm. Inside the reef, the water is clear, perpetually filtered and fed by a series of natural underground sources. The views are so beautiful and different due to this "swimming in the sea". You will see the dark blue sky of the Caribbean Sea beyond the reef that contrasts with the shallow bay where the colors change from deep blue to intense turquoise, depending on the position of the sun.
