There is nothing not to like abut this beach.. except maybe leaving. Beautiful clear waters rich with fish life. Feel like going horse back riding, you can do that. Relaxing in the sun, you can do that too. Make sure to explore the Ocean side of the beach as well as the bay side. And you must visit the lagoon... More

Good beach in Samana Area. Don't even try the Cayacoa Hotel one. It's brown and smelly. Although the best one was the Cayo Levantado Beach

Rode horses there from las Galeras with Rudy. GREAT ride, fun, long beach for beautiful, long gallops. Clean with lots of places to eat and drink, but be prepared for people selling you everything and anything on the beach.

This beach is literally the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We travelled with first choice and the guide was amazing! We travelled in a group of 9 and so had the entire excursion to ourselves... And the beach! There was no one else on it... It was paradise. The sea was clear and we spent hours just floating... More

We had a wonderful day on beach. Snorkeling, horseback riding, and lunch on the beautiful beach. The water was so warm and clear. We were on an excursion and said we had to leave.

So glad we went to Playa Rincon!! Beach was absolutely stunning. We can see why it is rated one of the top beaches in the Caribbean. Could have stayed in the water there for days. Was also interesting to go over where the river joined the ocean. Water was much cooler and very refreshing. Saw many local children playing and... More

Amazing clear blue/ green water, you can see to the bottom. Really amazing, lush surroundings. I've never seen a more amazing spot. We ate an wonderful lobster and fish lunch cooked by locals. It was the best meal I have had in the DR. The locals sang and played music. The beach was not overcrowded. It was quite empty except... More
