Samana Peninsula Sights

Puerto Escondido

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

Puerto Escondido is the beach at the Grand Bahía Principe Cayacoa (809/552–1444) and day visitors can enjoy the sands if they buy a $60 day-pass at the resort. Though crowded with guests, the beach offers great views of the bay, plenty of drinks and lunch options, chaises, nonmotorized water sports, and the best strand on the south side of the peninsula. Amenities are available if you partake of the resort's facilities. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking; snorkeling.

Puerto Escondido Review

THE ONLY BEAUTIFUL BEACH LOCATED DOWNTOWN SAMANA VILLAGE We have been living in Samana village for over 3 months now. ( also called Samana City or Santa Barbara de Samana )I personally go there every morning from 9 to 10 am to swim before starting my day of work. Beautiful with crystal clear waters, this PUBLIC BEACH is shared by the Hotel Bahia Principe Cayacoa. You can buy a day pass if you want to enjoy the resort facilities or you can go simply

go for FREE, to swim, sunbath and enjoy a walk on this short but gorgeous beach.
