Playa Rincon, Samana Province

4.5
#1 of 16 in Parks in Samana Province
Step on the powdery white sands of the unspoiled Playa Rincon, often referred to as one of the best beaches in the world. The beach's picturesque location incorporates an array of wonderful natural features; observe lush mountains of green across the bay, while majestic palms loom overhead, all set against the striking blue of the ocean. Enjoy a meal of freshly caught fish at the beach's restaurant, or relax on the sun loungers provided. Go for a stroll down the beach and, once you've got away from the crowds, you'll feel like you have it all to yourself.

  • We walked the beach with our car. The last stretch of the road is unpaved but you can safely reach the beach without a jeep, with a simple car ... just go slow, with some attention ... we didn't, sensed the feeling of danger reported in other reviews ... we went twice. The first time the beach was full of algae and cloudy sky with all the sea was grey ... There was just a beautiful stretch of sand and palme....la second time with the Sun instead loved the beach, beautiful ... the sea of many colors and shades. Palm trees to no end ... in the wildest, the one on the left, flows a stream of fresh water, which I recommend to surf for a short distance with a gentleman who escorted us to the edge of a wooden canoe ... beautiful landscape amidst the natural sceneries created by mangroves ... on the right side of the beach there are sun loungers and two restaurants ... between the two ends there is a huge expanse of sand and palm trees with a wonderful sea ... few people even during the Christmas holidays, where in other places instead of the beaches were crowded, we ate in the first "restaurant" (La Brassa del Mar) located on the right side and thoroughly enjoyed the lobster "al carbon" under the shade of an umbrella by the sea we'll remember forever ... a must if you come from these parts ....

  • We went here on an ATV tour and found it lovely. We had a great lunch at one of the shacks. The fish and chicken were so tasty. If you walk over the ridge at the far end, you will find that you have a...  more »

  • Beautiful beach. You can bring your own chairs and cooler and relax in your own quiet section of beach, or you can go to either end and rent some beach chairs. Each end also has some open air Dominican restaurants with some light food. Chicken, rice, local fish are common, as well as coconut bread and other homemade food.
  • My favorite beach in the DR
  • I love playa Rincon
  • I came here because they told me it was one of the best beaches in the Samana area. The Caribbean feel was there, and I was glad to go, but I was so disappointed on how filthy and how much garbage is left on the beach grounds. I was there couple of years ago though, and all I remember is that they didn't care about garbage whatsoever. It totally ruined the image of the beach for me. Getting there was good, I enjoyed the scenery. Untouched nature and all.
