Playa Grande, Dominican Republic

Sprinting to the Sea on Playa Grande

Sometimes, you just can’t wait for a second longer to dive into the impossibly blue waters of the Caribbean. It’s at these moments that some beaches make it more difficult than others to quench your desire. At a mile long and with sand stretching for well beyond 100 yards at its widest point, Playa Grande more than lives up to its name. But while it may be spectacular to gaze upon, when you really really want to get into that water, you better be ready for a lengthy sprint.

So, how fast do you think you could run the 100-yard dash if the reward were to splash in the pristine waters off the northern coast of the Dominican Republic?

To stay right on this beach at one of the most spectacular hotels in the entire Caribbean, be sure to look into the incomparable Amanera Resort.
