One of the must-see tourist destinations in Pedernales is Bahía de Las Águilas, or in English, it’s called “Bay of Eagles.” It is deemed as the crown jewel of Dominican beaches and is situated in Jaragua National Park.

And if you fancy a secluded beach, Bahía de Las Águilas is an excellent place to find one.

Another destination you shouldn’t miss is the breathtaking “Pozos Ecológicos” and their crystalline waters. It’s a very unique place in Pedernales with 3 ecological wells of crystal clear water. Take in the atmosphere – a perfect way to rejuvenate as you enjoy the rest of your visit in the beautiful province of Pedernales. It is also very accessible and just a few meters walk from the main road “Route 44”.

Alternatively, you may opt for an even more peaceful oasis and appreciate the natural beauty of this province’s wild surroundings.
