6 Things To Know Before Visiting Playa Moran Beach

2 Traveling Lovers

Today we took the trek on our scooter to Playa Moron Beach.  Here are our 6 Things To Know Before Visiting Playa Moran Beach. From Las Terrenas, it took us about 45 min to an hour. It’s located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, north of El Limon. It was a pretty smooth ride for most of the way. The closer we got to Playa Moron Beach the worse the roads got. 

The last two miles of the drive had many patches of just dirt and large pitholes filled with water. For those of you who have scooters be aware and drive slowly. Parts of the road were washed out from the rain in the past few days. We would not suggest going to this beach if it’s raining or it’s expected.

Playa Moron, if googled is always in the top things to do in this area. Although it was a highlight of our trip it sort of amazed us, as it wasn’t easy to get to and when we arrived there wasn’t a soul on the beach except us. There is a private Villa on the peninsula and a restaurant at the far end of the beach that serves that Villa named LA Praia. We went up to ask if we could pay cash or buy a drink or food and they told us no, it was private only.

The beach is stunningly beautiful; you feel like you’re on a deserted island all by yourself. With that comes a little bit of an eerie feeling, not going to lie. If your car or scooter broke down it would not be fun trying to get help. But we have our Wilson’s, with each other (movie reference).

Suggestions and Tips

 If we were to give a couple suggestions or tips, they would go as follows:

1. You can take your scooter, but be careful on the last part of your journey. When you’re going down the hills, and it’s gravel, it can get very slippery, and your scooter can start to slide.

2. Make sure to pack something to eat and drink. There is nothing within 3-4 miles, so if you get hungry or thirsty, you’re out of luck. 

We use the Primocean Backpack with an insulated cooler bag daily.  We use this as Christie’s carryon bag on the plane and as our cooler at our final destination.  We used to use a different backpack and we switched to this one because it’s better made of durable material with quality zippers.  We love this backpack!!  If you are interested in checking it out here is the Amazon link: Click Here.  

3. The swimming is great, and the water is perfect, but we suggest you stay on the right half of the beach facing the ocean. There are more rocks, and the waves are more prominent on the left when facing the sea.

4. Bring your camera!!! So many picturesque shots. With the waves crashing into the rocks, eagles flying, palm trees, waves crashing you can spend a couple of hours just taking photos. If you are staring at the beach and you walk to the left all the way to the end there are some stairs and a sitting area that is made from stone.  It’s cool to see and very photogenic.  We use our GoPro Daily! Its rugged and we don’t stress about breaking it. It takes 4k video, great pictures and has been amazing for us during our travels.  We use a GoPro Hero6 when taking underwater shots and video.  If you want to check it out, here is the Amazon link.  Click here. 

5. Take your time getting here. There are lots to see in the way of the jungle landscape, but also observing how the locals live. We found it fascinating that many of these locals seem to use horses as their primary source of transportation. There are homes in the middle of nowhere. We felt the only way of survival would be that they are 100% self-sustainable.

 6. Do not use Google Maps to get here; it will take you to the Vacation Villas which is just a locked gate. Watch the video attached to this blog post, and we’ll show you exactly what road you need to take to get in here. The last stretch of road is the worst part. If it has rained in the previous few days be ready for huge puddles and lots of mud. You can walk the last quarter mile, but we did not feel comfortable leaving our scooter out on the main road area.

Playa Moron is the fifth beach that we have gone to in the Las Terrenas area. It’s incredible how every beach has its unique style. We love secluded spots, and Playa Moron does not disappoint. We both swam for hours even worked out on the beach with nobody around but each other. The water is beautiful turquoise green and blue. There is a mist that comes off the inland area that makes it very picturesque and almost dreamy like.

Closing Words

The Las Terrenas area of the Dominican Republic has some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever been to in our lives. If you are planning a vacation, there is no doubt that we I would strongly suggest this area of the Dominican Republic. Many of the beaches we visited were a secluded raw coastal beauty. Take advantage now before these areas start to get built up. There is no doubt in my mind that within 20 years they won’t be the secluded paradise they are now.
