What to see in Amber Cove

Amber Cove is not just a picturesque docking point but a doorway to the island’s cultural richness and natural splendour.

A short drive from Amber Cove transports you to the 27 Charcos of Damajagua, a series of cascading waterfalls that have carved out stunning lagoons over millennia. These falls, hidden amidst the thick tropical forest, are one of the Dominican Republic’s best-kept secrets. The adventure begins with a hike through the verdant forest, accompanied by the harmonious symphony of birds and distant water. As you approach the falls, nature’s artistry becomes evident, with each waterfall presenting a unique setting. For the thrill-seekers, some of these falls can be descended by sliding or jumping, while others beckon for a tranquil swim in their azure pools. The Damajagua Waterfalls encapsulate the island’s untamed beauty and the exhilarating spirit of adventure.

Overlooking the Atlantic, the Fort of San Felipe stands as a resilient testament to the Dominican Republic’s colonial history. Constructed in the 16th century to ward off pirates and foreign invaders, this fort, just a short jaunt from Amber Cove, now serves as a historical museum narrating tales of bygone eras. As you stroll through the fort’s stone corridors, you’re transported to a time of cannons, battles and maritime strategies. Each relic, artefact and architectural detail whispers stories of Spanish colonialism, piracy and the island’s quest for freedom. The adjacent promenade offers a serene spot to gaze upon the vast ocean, pondering the fort’s strategic importance and imagining the ships that once sought to breach its defences.

The Dominican Republic’s Amber Coast gets its name from the rich deposits of amber found in the region. The Amber Museum in Puerto Plata, easily accessible from Amber Cove, delves into this fascinating aspect of the island’s geological and cultural heritage. Housed in a Victorian-era mansion, the museum showcases an impressive collection of amber specimens, some of which hold ancient fossils that are millions of years old. The guided tour provides insights into how amber is formed, its significance in the Dominican culture and its uses throughout history. As a bonus, some specimens are illuminated under UV light, revealing their mesmerising blue glow.
