Amber Cove, Dominican Republic

Discovering new sights is one of the beauties of travel, and that couldn't be more true when it comes to Amber Cove, Dominican Republic. In this world full of information on just about everything, Amber Cove is a throwback — it’s the kind of quiet little spot you won’t find on most maps. But you will find it — brimming with bars and pools, plus opportunities for lounging and shopping — to be the gateway to island paradise, Dominican-style. Beyond Amber Cove is Puerto Plata, a town that began life as the first European settlement in the Americas. Its founder? Oh, just a guy named Christopher Columbus… so you know that arriving by sea is the ultimate way to get here. Whether you're looking for a day at the beach, some Dominican Republic adventure or just a little poolside me-time, Amber Cove is just the ticket. 

  • Explore Fort San Felipe, originally built to ward off pirates, which today welcomes curious travelers of all kinds.
  • This spot is known for its remarkable local amber — actually the clearest you’ll find anywhere in the world.
  • Take a ride on the wild side on an amazing ATV Adventure tour through the undiscovered Dominican Republic backcountry!
  • Swim with dolphins, stingrays — and yes, even sharks! — at Ocean World.
