At Diamond Beach (playa diamante) in Cabrera, Dominican Republic, you can walk out into the water 200ft before it even gets above your knees. A natural hot spring runs beneath the cove and warms the sand under your feet. Pull up a chair underneath an almond tree and just gaze into the crystal clear blue water. This is a great beach for kids as the water is not very deep and the sand is perfect. You can also go snorkeling if you wade out far enough. It's very secluded and peaceful. Awesome spot to spend the day.
