  • Always good to experience some true relaxing vibes, can't wait to be back in this beuatiful land. Yew!  more »
  • This beach is great. It's probably the least crowded in the area, with great views. There are places where little streams of fresh water come out of the rocks and into the ocean.  more »

  • Beautiful beach with a cold Crystal clear steam at one end and a bigger stream on the other end. In the rainy season one is much better off with 4x4 vehicle to get here since one has to pass a river
  • This remote beach can be a little tricky to reach if the stream is high. You can get there in a small rental car, but do not try it if you have no experience driving off road, or if the water is high. You will find it by taking a left outside of Samana toward the ziplines. Keep going past the zipline and the small waterfall and over the stream. Once you get over the stream go left for about a mile. You will find a beach with very few people and striking mountains that jut up from each side. On both sides you will find freshwater streams that empty into the ocean. Be careful because the undertow is very strong. Do not venture to the right if the water is up high. All my guests have enjoyed the Dominican cooking there. Great place to relax and enjoy nature. This is not well traveled beach, especially off season.
  • Great beach ! Not crowded at all!
  • Our host from Las Galeras took us on a sight seeing tour. As with all of the beach restaurants the meal was great and the vistas are supreme.
  • Nice and wild beach🌴🌊
