  • Интересное место, но нам не повезло - после шторма море было грязновато и купаться не стали - уехали на пляж Рикон 
  • nous avons passée un bon moment sur cette plage magnifique. 20 minutes à pieds du village de Las Galeras, on peut y boire un coco loco, on peut y manger.... que du bonheur 
  • Sandstrand mit einheimischen Strandbars und Restaurant. Gelegentlich total überlaufen, da die Tourguides hier mit ihren Gruppen auftauchen. Dann ist es auch teurer. Ansonsten sind Essen und Trinken an...  more »

  • Great beach and great views. One of the best beaches in samana. Be sure to bring money for a seat in the shade. Some good local eating places right there on the beach.
  • Calm, clean, safe, quiet... Bring a few pesos to rent a beach chair. Excellent fresh seafood, owner doesn't know math... Knows how to cook! Calm beach overlooks Playa Rincón. Easy parking if you have a car/motorcycle... Gas up in Samaná - no gas stations!
  • Beautiful beach with white sand and transparent water 💦
  • This is for me one of the best beaches in the world, if you like nice beach you must come to this place
  • TOP BEACH in the Samana peninsula ! As a living resident of Samana for over 6 years, i can assure you that LA PLAYITA in Las Galeras is one of our most gorgeous beach in our region. Shallow crystal clear waters and a scenery that will take your breath away. Try the "catch of the day" with garlic butter served with fresh vegetables a PLAYITA RESTAURANT. Not-to-be-missed when you visit Samana !
