This island is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in the world. The beaches are spectacular and the water is nice, warm and tranquil. I can't wait to visit again and take in the sights!

We went by car from Las Terrenas to Samana ( about 45min to an hour drive) and then just followed the signs to cayo levantado. You will have to negociate a price with the guys with the speed boats ( we paid $ 20,- for the 3 of us, 2 adults 1 two year old) which will then take you... More

Title says it all. just a nice island with a nice beach. Not much to see with snorkeling at the beach, only thing worth seeing is at the back of the island (can reach it by boat).

We stopped on an excursion. Beautiful beach. Like everywhere you go, the locals are harassing you for a $. When you sit on what appears to be a vacant lounge chair, one of the locals pops out of nowhere and wants rent for the chair. The washrooms are unbelievable. :( Stay on the mainland DR it's not worth the trip.

The most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Your eyes dance as you look around and take in the scenary. I have been to the beach in Culebra and believe me, this ranks right up there with that beach. The sand is clean, and the water is sparkling. What a nice boat ride from our hotel the Bahia Principe Cayoca.

The public beach is nice, did not like the charging for using rickety chairs. The resort here looks amazing.
