“truly beautiful!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

My husband and arrived at 9am by boat and there was only a dozen people on the beach. we started walking the 5 km beach and ours were the first footprints of the day. This place really is untouched and we hope it stays that way. People staying at punta cana actually rent helicopters just to fly over this. Why not stay at los galeras and go here for a day trip (the boat ride is only 20 minutes, 15 dollars round trip) There was no vendors on the beach except for a guy with a cooler full of cold beer. There is a BBQ but we just stocked up on buns, bananas and juice from breakfast at the resort and snacked.The water was so clear and bright! Remember, it is only safe to swim in front of the beach chair area. Yes, sad to say, we saw there was garbage (mostly plastic bottles) washed up on shore further down the beach.

“Rincon Beach”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We were disappointed in the beach itself - not as nice as the one at Cayo Levantado. It was not well-maintained, the chairs were in bad shape and most of the shoreline wasn't swimmer-friendly.

“Great place”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

You rent a cab from the hotel till that beach and discover the nature, fantastic. Or go to las gal eras, and take the boat, also beautiful. Since you are there, try also the playa foron. Crusoe style, nothing around

“Nice Beach!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We went there on our own. we hung out with the locals and ended up staying for a bonfire/bbq in the evening. It was a good day off the beaten bath.
