This is by far the best beach we've ever been to. There was no tourists, the sand was magnificent and the water was such a beautiful colour...and there was waves! We went to this beach at least 3 times during our 1 week vacation. We rented a car, and asked a local guy to show us where it was for... More

This beach is gorgeous. It's very quiet. I noticed that the beaches in La Terrenas were a little different than the ones in Punta Cana, for example. The sand is soft and has more of a pinkish tone. It is a sunbather's paradise since it doesn't have many palm trees on the actual beach. There are no vendors for food... More

If driving from anywhere in Samana, Playa Moron in very easy to get to. Once you get to Las Terrenas you can walk around to the beach or feel free to drive. It's a small drive but parking is not a problem so you can get around without having to park far away. There are plenty of restaurants and bars... More

was not impressed. difficult to find a shadow but the water is very clean and beautiful. It was a little bit long and not that convinient way to go - up the hill, you have to have more or less good health condition....

wild and solitaire, but better beach than las terrenas, but you can only get in SUVs, but it is worth it

It's a beautiful beach, but to wavy for our taste. Terrible to get there driving. No restaurants near but that's the price you pay for a virgin beach. There's a touristic project building nearby and they made us walk a 1/4 mile (not cool).

This beach is somewhat like a small version of Playa Rincon. If you are in Las Terrenas and don't want to drive all the way to Las Galeras, this would be a good alternative. Come here for some seclusion, not for the swimming. At the moment, the poorer road in here means not much traffic. I am sure that will... More

Don't miss it !! It is secluded and a little hard to get to, but worth it. Unfortunately, they have a project of luxury villas in the works, not sure, this playa will remain accessible for long.
