This was by far the best beach we visited while in the Dominican Republic (We were not able to make it to Samana this trip) It was clean and while there were vendors I did not find them pushy at all. It was actually enjoyable talking with them and haggling to get the pendant I wanted. The beach is amazing. Warning, the current can be strong. It seems more like a local spot than a tourist place, although there were several tourists visiting. Absolutely beautiful beach. I could have spent all day there.
