Explore the natural treasures of Dorado Beach on our Eco Adventures where participants of all ages have hands-on experiences learning how to protect fragile coastal environments.
West Beach is a chain of golden sand crescents, protected by coral reefs that create tide pools for exploring, with peaceful lagoons for swimming and snorkeling. This is the remarkably lush beach that attracted Rockefeller to Dorado Beach. West Beach is home to Encanto Beach Club, a beach with a large ocean view pool and open-air beachfront dining. This beachside getaway features a large family pool with bubble beds, lap pool, and shady poolside cabanas. Steps from the beach, Encanto Beach Bar & Grill serves freshly grilled fare in a contemporary setting where you can dine while sinking your toes into the sand.
