Near the town of Las Terrenas you will also find other exciting and beautiful beaches for windsurfing and other water sports. In Las Terrenas there are beaches for all tastes.

Las Ballenas Beach

Las Ballenas beach, west of the village, can be reached on foot or by car from the town of Las Terrenas.
Along Playa Las Ballenas, which stretches for more than 2 km, there are several hotels and restaurants and a sailing school. It is the ideal place for those who love a quiet beach and want to enjoy the sun or have a cocktail under the shade of the coconut trees.

Bonita Beach

Playa Bonita is located west of town, separated from the town of Las Terrenas by Punta Bonita, a rocky promontory. Playa Bonita has experienced a great development with the construction of villas and apartments, and is classified as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A true postcard of paradise.
Between Playa Bonita and Playa Ballena we find the small but very nice Playa Perdida next to Punta Bonita.

Cosón Beach

Further west than Playa Bonita, Playa Cosón is a huge beach, lined with coconut trees and still wild. The sea is beautiful, but swimming is not very good due to the presence of rocks near the shore. Access is by car, and there are two entrances to Playa Cosón, each with a small local bar and restaurant.
Playa Cosón is ideal for surfing and bodysurfing, and is home to several luxury residences.

Popy & Portillo beaches

On the other side of Las Terrenas are the beaches of Popy and Portillo. Popy is adjacent to the beach of Las Terrenas, with many small bars and restaurants along the beach. Portillo, further east, is wilder and more deserted. It is also a great place for diving and snorkeling.
