Amber Cove beaches?

Recommended Posts

Are there any pretty beaches at Amber Cove? We went to DR once, Isla Catalina, and the beach there was gorgeous. I love white sand, blue water, swimmable. (Or wadeable) any chance of this at AC? Or will be be stuck at the expensive pool? TIA

this is carnival made port. completely commercial, including all the Diamond International stores and every alcohol store. there is a pool and bar and man made sand. you can get a all day pass or pay as you go. never like the port but Puerto Plata is worth exploring. google amber cove and you will see the maps available. it is a bit out of the way from the real beach which some will take a taxi to.  many other thread on the cost of taxi and shuttle but wait and see after covid. There are no sailing so no new reviews.

nothing like planning ahead two years. wishful thinking. you are going to a cruise port that is not finished yet, there are no tours from that cruise port but there are tours for hotels being advertised. with the pandemic, who know what is going to happen to that port that is being privately funded. i am booked with RCL into that port next year but will wait to see if it is actually confirm once sailing starts again. Last time i check with someone who winter there, it is still a cargo terminal, really rough, but small amount of work is being done now.
