Samana Peninsula Sights

Playa Las Ballenas

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 03/13/2015

Fodor's Review

Playa Las Ballenas is the westernmost of the three beaches at the town of Las Terrenas (the others are Terrenas and Punta Popy, all three of them forming a continuous stretch of beach with different names). Ballenas is the nicest stretch in town since it's the quietest. Moderately-priced hotels across the street provide chaises to their guests, and the Hotel Playa Colibri runs a little beach bar. Kayaking and sailing on HobyCats are popular here. This beach is named for the small whale-shaped cays in the distance. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: sunrise; sunset; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
