South-West coast Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover South-West coast

The southwest shore, in the region of Barahona, comes across as wild, with an agitated sea and a less intrusive approach to tourism than on the rest of the island. The beaches give an impressive extended view of the Baoruco Mountains.
