Buzzing Holeis the only beach in the country surrounded by alkaline rocks and whitish sand nestled on the eastern plain of Hispaniola Island, next to Parque del Este, facing the Caribbean Sea, without coconut palms, in the municipality of San Rafael del Yuma, it is where this singular aquatic paradise is located.
Buzzing Hole, which owes its name to the sound emitted by the beating of the water against the reefs, is close to the mouth of the Yuma River, whose waters, which carry sediment, do not dirty the attraction. It is a place where you can see the flight of pelicans, white herons and other birds, fly to the beat of the ships that take fishermen to look for the delicacy in the sea.
It is one of the main tourist attractions of the coastal town of Boca de Yuma, in San Rafael de Yuma, La Altagracia province. Its crystalline blue waters, which move in a coating similar to a stone pool, patiently forged by nature thousands of years ago, is a destination to be explored by those who like sun and beach tourism.

It is the only “interior beach”, located 20 meters from the coast and to which you descend by a small path that begins on the sidewalk of the street that leads to the place. Boca de Yuma, a small fishing village, cannot imagine the value that this small space of turquoise blue water and rocks gives it.
From the heights of the rocks that protect the spa, bathers dive into the water, which in some places is up to four meters deep. The water enters it in a jet due to the pressure of the sea tide, which when it is high, fills the cavity.
Although the vegetation is absent, its beauty from above is spectacular, where you can differentiate the dark blue of the sea with the hue of Zumbador beach. The municipal authorities have enabled the environment with trails, to facilitate access.
It is a true paradise, unknown by the generality of the esteños, as they now call those who live in the eastern part of the island of Hispaniola and tourists who visit the country.
