Playa Bonita, Las Terrenas

(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Get away from the crowds at Playa Bonita, a small and secluded beach that offers a welcome contrast to others on the Samana Peninsula. The crescent-shaped beach has a castaway feel, with a rugged but inviting atmosphere. More exposed than other beaches nearby, the wind and water come on strongly here, making it particularly good for surfers, boogie boarders, or people who enjoy a bit more action offshore. Quiet, restful, and a little wild, the beach still has much to offer in the way of restaurants and other amenities, with businesses set just back from the sands. Playa Bonita is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Las Terrenas Edition.
