BAYAHIBE
MAGALLANES BEACH

This is probably the favorite beach of most of the foreigners who reside in Bayahibe. The beach is small and with some rocks around it. It is hidden in a small bay and offers a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. The water is always crystal clear, waves form when there is a lot of wind. What makes this beach famous is the possibility of snorkeling.

It is one of the "secret jewels" of Bayahibe. Due to its location, which is not very commercial, there are never crowded. There are no beds or restaurants available, and no high-volume stereos. It is a virgin beach. You can walk on the rocks and look for the small pools that have formed over time. Attention: rocks are coral formations and can be sharp. If you want to explore, it is advisable to wear rubber beach shoes.

The seabed is mainly rocky, except for a strip of sand that allows access to the water. If you just want to swim a bit, pay attention to the rocks at the bottom as they are populated by sea urchins. Also in this case, we recommend wearing rubber shoes. If you also decide to "walk on the rocks", pay attention to the corals and sea urchins that live there. We care deeply about the underwater life of this place.

This beach is accessible by car, but there is no real parking so you can park freely but carefully.
