Playa Las Ballenas, Las Terrenas

4.6
#4 of 8 in Beaches in Samana Province
Soak in some vitamin D on the sand at Playa Las Ballenas. The tropical paradise features pristine sand and gently rippling waters, with a line of shady palm trees bowing over the shoreline. Just before the sand, find a grassy area with plenty of umbrellas and chairs. Grab a bite or a refreshing drink at one of the surrounding bars or restaurants, and enjoy views over the Caribbean Sea.

  • The beach is wonderful to go with the family... until our dog had. The beach is quiet; the view is mesmerizing and the water is tasty.

  • It is a very nice, long and spacious Beach to accommodate their wide, although the sea has many places with corals, there are spaces of infinite blue, there is not much traders or shops, in the front row are Apart hotels, residences and small hotels where there is no large influx of people, there are some bars that belong to the hotels and night becomes pleasant.
