Amber Cove Will Be Your New Favorite Caribbean Port


Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic offers so much for cruisers to do.

Amber Cove is one of the Caribbean’s newest ports. Located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic near Puerto Plata, Amber Cove can host over 8,000 cruise passengers and 2,000 crew members each day. While there is so much to do in driving distance from Amber Cove such as Damajagua Falls or Ocean World Adventure Park, we suggest staying put in the port and enjoying all Amber Cove has to offer. Read on to learn about some of the great amenities that are just a few steps away from your ship once you dock!

Hit the Pool at Amber Cove

There’s no doubt Amber Cove has one of the best cruise port pools we have ever seen. The best part? You can use it free of charge! Grab a lounge chair and you could easily spend your whole day hanging by the pool. Amenities include a beach entry section of the pool, swim up bar, a splash area for kids, and rentals such as umbrellas, pool floats or noodles. Be sure to arrive early to get the best spot. There will be music and entertainment to keep the fun going all day long!

Check Out Amber Cove’s Sky Bar

Another popular feature of Amber Cove is the Sky Bar. In the center of the cruise port, you will find steps leading up a hill with a rewarding scenery at the top. Take in the 360-degree panoramic views while sipping on your favorite cocktail. You’ll be able to look down on the ships in port, the pool area, and the endless mountain ranges in the distance.

Experience Thrill of Amber Cove

Without a doubt one of the top activities to experience in Amber Cove is the ziplining. Soar right over the pool area and take in all the surrounding sights as you zip line through the port. At just $20 for adults and $10 for kids, you can take unlimited ziplines during your time in port. Not into heights but still want to have an adventure? Aquaboats, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are also available for rent to rent at reasonable prices. There are water slides in the pool area too if you are looking for an adventure free of charge! 

Relax in a Cabana

If you’re looking for a more private place for your group to relax, a cabana rental may be the right choice for you. There are three options for cabana rentals and prices differ depending on the cabana you choose. There are ocean cabanas, poolside cabanas and hillside cabanas. All cabana rentals include unlimited ziplining passes, bottles of water, sodas, and a basket of local goodies. They also include air conditioning, wi-fi, cable tv, a mini-fridge, a deck with chairs, and an outdoor shower. If you’re looking for something for a larger group up to 20 people we recommend renting the grand cabana – a 1,000 square foot over water bungalow. This bungalow includes all the amenities of the smaller cabanas plus a personal hot tub and two water sport rentals for one hour.

Shop Til You Drop in Amber Cove

If you love duty free shopping then you will have to check out all the shops Amber Cove has to offer. When you reach the port take a left and just steps away you will find some of your favorite cruise port stores such as Del Sol, Cariloha, Diamonds International, and Effy Jewelers as well as some local gift shops to get must-have souvenirs!
