The beach of Cabeza de Toro is known as the birthplace of the sun. The sand is white and the water is almost always crystal clear. I say "almost" because, like almost all the beaches in the area, the currents are sometimes filled with algae and the water doesn't have that bright blue as it does further south. Most hotels try to clean the beaches in the morning. Best part of the beach (in addition to its warm waters) are the numerous coconut trees where you can relax in the shade. Cabeza de Toro Beach, is named for its shape and is between the beaches of El Cortecito and Cape Deceits, with Punta Cana and Juanillo at the other end.
