The largest beach resort on the north coast of the island

Playa Dorada holidays will find you relaxing in the largest beach resort on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, sometimes referred to as the Amber Coast due to the abundance of golden amber found in the region.

Relax on the Amber Coast

Playa Dorada has over eight miles of stunning golden sandy beaches fringed with swaying palm trees and sun loungers. The sand gently trickles into the beautiful turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean all set against the backdrop of Mount Isabel.
