Dominican Republic Yacht Charter
Miles upon miles of coastline defines the island of the Dominican Republic – expect palm-fringed pristine beaches,dramatic cliff faces, mangrove lagoons or sweeping dunes. No other Caribbean yacht charter destination offers such a diverse range of landscapes. The island is well-known for itshigh-end luxury resorts butits entirecoastline is taken up so there are still quite a few remote anchorages available.
The towns, again awash with old Spanish colonial buildings, cobblestones streets and horse and carts blast with Merengue beats tilldawn, the elders sit and play dominoes in the plazas; get inland and enjoy quaint rural villages or spend lazy afternoons in shabby chic beach shacks drinking the local beer. Perhaps hike some of the dramatic peaks too.
The varied coastline is a pleasure to sail around – the small fishing villages are bustling with local life, the small coves and bays offer picture perfect turquoise waters, white sand untouched beaches sometimes bordered by sheer white cliffs and other times palm fringed, or just an excuse to drop anchor and get out the water toys. The waters surrounding the island also offer a temporary home to humpback whales so, if you are lucky it is possible to see one or two in season.
