Playa Punta Popy, Las Terrenas

4.1
#6 of 8 in Beaches in Samana Province
Visit the picturesque and vibrant Playa Punta Popy, a long beach that encompasses everything from fun and games to peace and quiet. Rest beneath the palms on the main strip, where you have bars, restaurants, and water sports businesses at your disposal. Alternatively, consider walking east beyond the point, for a more peaceful spot to enjoy the sea. The beach can get busy with locals enjoying picnics and music on Sunday. However, despite the crowds, a police presence keeps things safe and under control.

  • What a beautiful beach. Beautiful white sand and crystal clear water. You can walk quietly and sit without getting hassled. The weekend, locals go there family swim and picnic, and unlike some other beaches of the Republic, they seem to be a little more careful to not leave the beach covered with scrap to their departure.

  • 100% Caribbean beach. Total natural, crystal clear water and clean sand. Good atmosphere for a stay as a couple or with children. Rent you the hammocks at good price and there are locals as "the guy" that bring you drinks, tables and chairs and food for very reasonable prices!
