BEACHES FOR EVERY MOOD
SERENE WAVE POOLS TO EXHILARATING SURF
West Beach: A Peaceful Oasis
West Beach is a series of golden sand crescents, protected by coral reefs that create tide pools for exploring, and calm lagoons for swimming and snorkeling. This is the remarkably lush beach that drew Rockefeller to Dorado Beach. West Beach is now home to the Encanto Beach Club at Dorado Beach, a private beach with a large oceanview pool and open-air beachfront dining. Steps away from the Beach Club, a stunning selection of the ultra-luxe Ritz-Carlton West Beach beachfront residences are tucked just beneath the canopy of swaying palms.
East Beach: Nature's Playground
East Beach is ideal for long beach walks, with the surf on one side and Rockefeller's "Great Park" on the other. Nestled along this stretch of unspoiled natural wonders lies the largest and most luxurious selection of single-family beachfront homes: the Ritz-Carlton Reserve East Beach Villas. Down on the beach, GoodWinds provides an endless array of exhilarating water sports for all ages, including snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, kiteboarding and catamaran sailing. Barlovento Beach Bar provides casual bare-foot Caribbean eats and relaxation, in between activities. Next door is the famous Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment program, where adults, families and kids can participate in hands-on eco-adventures while learning how to protect fragile coastal environments.
