Looking for a Caribbean island holiday in 2020? Head to the Dominican Republic to soak up the island’s culture and enjoy kicking back on the beach with a view that’ll take your breath away. And that’s just the beginning. Lying on the eastern half of dazzlingly beautiful Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic staggeringly diverse landscape offers visitors so much more than a fortnight lazing on the beach. While the beaches are stunning, with miles of coastline to bask on, the mangrove swamps, stark deserts, steaming rainforests and hot, hot savannahs are all wonderfully waiting to be explored. The island’s cities and towns are a glorious mix of ramshackle huts and cosmopolitan sprawl - offering beach lovers plenty of shopping, culture and entertainment away from the warm and welcoming sands.

Visit the offshore island of Cayo Paraiso to get a glimpse of this ‘paradise island’ treasured by locals and visitors alike. Back on the mainland, 4x4 safaris offer bone-rattling excursions across the island’s varying terrain; boat trips give you the chance to see the miles of coastline from a different angle and the superb hotel pools are the ideal place to relax after a busy morning exploring the hidden gems of the Dominican Republic.

Top attractions

Top attractions

There’s an attraction for every type of holidaymaker in the Dominican Republic. The main draw is the Caribbean beaches. Crystal clear waters, brimming with colourful sea creatures attract snorkelers, swimmers and scuba divers. Away from the pristine beaches, the Los Haitises National Park is an adventure playground for explorers. Mangrove swamps and the thick rainforest terrain is a haven for exotic birds and native wildlife. Uncover hidden cave paintings left behind by the Taino Indians or take a boat trip to navigate the waterways. In the island’s capital you can lose yourself in the metropolitan maze and stumble across Zona Colonial - an old world in the midst of the cosmopolitan buzz. A UNESCO World Heritage Site definitely worth a visit. Time your trip right to catch a baseball game in one of the island’s stadiums, go on a whale watching trip or get swept up in one of the many colour filled regional fiestas.

A Dominican Republic holiday guarantees miles of sugar white sand and turquoise blue waters on your doorstep. For a visit to one of the loveliest, most raved-about beaches in the Caribbean, head to Playa Rincón. Lapped by a turquoise ocean and flanked by a dense palm forest, it’s a quintessential Caribbean photo opportunity. Perfect for those all-important holiday selfies and clocking up some serious sun-hours, the beach is second to none. Beaches elsewhere on the island closely match it for soft, soft sands and stunning views. With water-sports and some amazing natural encounters on the menu, it’s sometimes hard to tear yourself away from the gorgeousness of the glorious beaches.
