Playa Las Galeras

Playa Las Galeras Review

Playa Las Galeras is within this tiny coastal town, a 30-minute drive northeast from Samaná town. It's a lovely, long, and uncluttered beach (except for the wild dogs, some local litter, and the boat hawkers and shell vendors around El Kiosko). The sand is nearly white, the Atlantic waters generally calm. It has been designated a "Blue Flag" beach, which means that it's crystal-clean with no pollution, though there are several small hotels here. This is a good snorkeling spot, too. That said, this is really just a departure point for the nearby virgin beaches closer to the cape to the west. Hire a boat and get to them! Amenities: food and drink. Best For: partiers; sunset; walking.
