Dos Playa sits inside Arikok National Park. It is the most impressive beach on the East Coast. To be more precise there are 2 beaches - thus the Dos Playa - Two beaches name. If you're courageous enough, leave the first beach by the parking...More

This is accessible by vehicle or tour. A 4x4 is recommended, the people who cheated out and rented a compact were hating the off road parts to the park - and they are everywhere.

We went here on our own with a rented Jeep that allowed us to go anywhere in the Arikok National Park. This was just one of the highlights we experienced on our own. Highly recommended.

This whole shoreline is incredible. The rock formations in the area are just crazy, so watch your step if walking in. The whole area is worth exploring. And there just are no crowds.

The Dos playa beach is near the Natural brige and can be reached with a little hike, or atv tour. It is not recommended to go swimming, the strong rip tides with drag you out to the open ocean with little chance of rescue.
