  • We got there hiking through forest. Reserve around 1.5-2 hours one way. We were alone on the whole beach. Waves were too high for boats. Great experience. Use apps like maps.me to stay on a trail, because sometimes it gets tricky, since not many people use it. Worth the effort and if you like small challenges - walk, don’t take the boat to the beach.
  • This is nothing short of the perfect beach. It's difficult to get to (a treacherous hike I hear, or by private boat) which only adds to the allure. Sometimes they locals setup a stand to serve food and drink there but it's hit or miss. While much of DRs coral has been decimated do to climate change, the snorkeling was great.
  • Beautiful beach on the northeastern end of Samana island. Water is clear and sand is white and soft. Good for enjoying snorkeling!
  • Go in the morning if you want to visit this remote beach. The large cliffs behind the beach will cast a shadow in the afternoon. You can take a difficult two hour hike across the top of the mountain and down some steep steps, or take an easier one hour hike from Boca Diablo. You will find a great place to snorkel, but do not venture too far out because of the rip tide. Many locals run excursions from Las Galeras. They will take you in a small boat, and most will include some kind of lunch or refreshments, because many times you will not find anything to eat or drink there.
  • A beautiful beach with lots of shells
