Día Internacional de la Limpieza de Costas

Día Internacional de la Limpieza de CostasThe Dominican Republic is a paradise that has 1,550km of coastline with 600km of sandy beaches – a paradise for beach lovers! But the triumph of the unique island lies mainly in the diversity of its coast, buffeted by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and cradled by the Caribbean Sea in the south. Actually, our shores are simply wonderful — which is why we need to keep them clean!

This Saturday September 21st is “International Clean Coasts day”, which raises awareness of the importance of keeping the coast clean, while also actually cleaning it up!
