Boca Chica beach has immaculate fine sand. You can walk in the water and the depth will barely change, the water will be to your waist (or a little bit over) all the time. It's the most family friendly of all the Dominican Republic beaches.
The short distance from the capital city of the Dominican Republic, the crystalline waters and the white sands, turned Boca Chica in the most crowded beach of the Dominican Republic specially on weekends and holidays because is 19 miles (30 km) away from Santo Domingo. Boca Chica has two small islands, Los Pinos and La Matica, and two marinas.
