In order to break up my journey from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo I decided to stop for a night in Bayahibe, a town near La Romana on the Caribbean side of the island. It was different from both Bavaro and Macao. There were quite a lot of tourists, but most seemed to be there on a day trip from Punta Cana as the village is the gateway to Saona Island.
There were no waves in the ocean, nor were there big resorts- Bayahibe was more of a charming little city with more small cafés and guesthouses. There was not much to see, other than the beach, the clear turquise waters and the many smal cliff formations so after a few strolls up and down along the ocean it was time to move on and get back to the capital, Santo Domingo.
