Beaches in and near Las Galeras

Beach "Playa Las Galeras"

Also called "The Fisherman’s Beach", Playa Las Galeras is the main beach of Las Galeras. Centrally located at the end of the main road, you can't miss it!   This beach also is ideal for childreen and no swimmers, because the water isn´t deep for a long distance and a bis ri8ff out there is breaking the waves.
You can easily buy fresh fish from there, directly taken out of water. This is also the place to join a boat tour to other beaches and watch the whales.
There is also a typical restaurant on this beach. You can have all kinds of drinks and also a drink of a fresh coconut,
or eat some tasty Dominican food or everything of fresh sea food.

This beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean.
Perfect for swimming, Playa Rincon is a long beach of white sand for 5 km, surrounded by coconut and almond trees.
Here also flows a small river into the sea, in which one can wash the salt from the body immediately after the sea bath, if one is allergic against it.

There are different ways to go to this beach from the hotel: 

Beach "Playa Rincon"

- By motor or car: It’s recommended to have a Jeep or a SUV for this 30 min ride by road and the last 10 minutes dirt tracks.
- By motor taxi: For motors or the motor taxis of Las galeras no are problems to go there.
- By boat: From Las Galeras beach, you can find easily a fisherman who will bring you there and pick you up later.
- Walking: This is one of the most spectacular excursion to do in Las Galeras. It's a 2 hour walk, between deserted beaches and tropical forest.     

This beach also has different restaurants. Real restaurants in which you can eat very good seafood Dominican style. And self made places where you can eat and drink by typical, dominican beach style. Ask also for their "pan de coco", bread made with coconut.

Beach "Playa El Valle"

This beach is located between the village of Samana and Las Galeras. You'll need a motor or a car or a motor taxi to get there.
Defined by its name, el Valle (the Valley) is located between 2 mountains. The waves can be very big, depending on the season, and fantastic for surfing.
It is possible swim in the sea, but maybe better in the small river, ideal for children for example. Be careful because this beach has a lot of current and waves that can be dangerous. By the way to El Valle there also is a littel cascade, where you can take a bath in absolutly clear, fresh and cold Water.

This beach is close to Playa Rincon.
It's made up of 2 parts: one private (but you can swim there even if there are a lot of waves), and another totally wild and undeveloped one. No restaurants on this beach, so you better take your lunch with you.
You can reach it by boat from Las Galeras, by motor, motor taxi, car or walking from Las Galeras.     

Beach "Playa Colorada"

Beach "Caleton"

Bekannt auch als "Strand der Verliebten" ist dies ein sehr ruhiger, teilweise einsamer Strand, der zum Relaxen und Schmusen einlädt, nur 15 Minuten entfernt von Stadtzentrum Las Galeras. Da es auch hier kein Restaurant gibt, die Drinks und das Lunch-Paket nicht vergessen, oder ohne Ballast nur mal für einen romantischen Nachmittag dort hin.

La Playita is only 10 minutes away from us. This is a very beautiful beach, where tourists and dominicans like to spend time together.
Different lagoons, coconuts everywhere, and a small dominican bar where you can have fruit juices, beers etc... 

Beach "La Playita"

Beach "Playa Fronton"

Playa Fronton is for a lot of people the most beautiful beach of Las Galeras.
You can reach it by boat from Las Galeras, or walking - but this is a 2 hours trek in the jungle. Don't forget your diving masks and snorkels; this beach is perfect for discovering fish and coral reef.
We suggest going to this beach early, because at 3 pm the sun does not hit the beach anymore, as there is a big mountain behind it.     

Playa Madame is a few kilometers away from Las Galeras downtown. You can get there by boat or walking 30 min in the tropical forest. This is a little beach, but totally natural with no developments! The lagoons are perfect for swimming and the sand is white and pink! You can also explore the caves (don't forget your flashlight!)
There is no restaurant at this beach, so take your lunch with you!
