Fodor's Expert Review Playa Cosón

Las Terrenas Beach Fodor's Choice
Coson Beach, Las Terrenas, Samana Peninsula, Dominican Republic, Caribbean

This is a long, wonderful stretch of nearly white sand and the best beach close to the town of Las Terrenas. Previously undeveloped, it's now reachable by a new highway, Carretera Cosón, and there are a number of condo developments under construction (so the current sense of solitude probably won't last). One excellent restaurant, called The Beach, serves the entire 15-mile (24-km) shore, and there's the European-owned boutique hotel Casa Cosón and its restaurant and bar. If beachgoers buy lunch and/or drinks at either, then they can use the restrooms. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets. Best for: sunset; swimming; walking; kitesurfing.
