Rented a boat and captain through Escapade de Samana in the Bannister Hotel. Spent half the day lounging around on the beach. Did a little shopping for gifts and had some great food while we were there.
One recommendation. Time your visit to the island when the cruise ships are NOT visiting. We checked with Fabrice at Escapade de Samana and he told us which days to avoid. Makes a BIG difference. It was not crowded at all when we went. When the cruise ships arrive the crowds must be huge! Nice beach. Great way to spend a day.
