Location - access map to Bahia De Las Aguilas
The bay is located in the extreme southwest of the Dominican Republic, in the province of Pedernales. It is far from everything and that is what makes its charm because mass tourism has not arrived that far. Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic is more than 186 miles away. The major tourist centers are far too far away to be able to go there for just one day.
