Samaná Peninsula Sights

La Playita

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 03/13/2015

Fodor's Review

La Playita, or Little Beach, is a stunner that's a 15-minute walk from the main Las Galeras beach. Here you'll find a small shack serving fresh fish and a newer, two-story stucco restaurant with a variety of seafood offerings and a full bar (there's a disco at night). There are some grubby plastic lounges for rent, some makeshift grills, and a beautiful small beach with few people. Coconut trees lean far out over the water, and the virgin stretch of Cabo Cabrón extends far along one side, providing incredible views and a sense of privacy and solitude. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets. Best for: solitude; partiers; sunset; swimming; walking.
