Coral reefs are found in shallow, tropical waters, such as those surrounding the Dominican Republic. Of the three types of reefs worldwide, two are found off the DR: fringing reefs and barrier (or bank) reefs. Fringing reefs, familiar to snorkelers, start at the mainland and are often visible at low tide just offshore. Barrier or bank reefs are shallow areas farther out to sea that are separated from shore by wide lagoons, and require boats to reach. These are generally richer in marine life, especially since many of the fringing reefs in the DR have been damaged by pollution and careless boating and fishing practices.

The most northerly is the Cordillera Septentrional (Northern Range), which stretches from Montecristi in the far northwestern corner of the DR to the lowlands west of the Samaná Peninsula in the northeast.
