Tread pearlescent sands and discover lush landscapes , Samana is a shimmering beach resort of the Dominican Republic’s northeast coast. Where leafy coconut trees look over a bank of sugar white sand that is lapped by the turquoise ocean, Samana is the epitome of exotic heaven. Stretching along 40 kilometres of glorious coastline, it boasts an eclectic blend of sloping mountains, rolling hills and cascading waterfalls. Whether you want complete peace beside the sea, cultural days with the locals, or adventures with nature, you’ll find it all here on Samana holidays on this exotic cloud nine.

Retaining its local charm but filled with top amenities, Las Terrenas is the perfect pick if you want a getaway jam-packed with adventure sports, entertainment and cultural findings. As a village set along a pale sandy shoreline, La Terrenas will see you soaking up a laid-back, Mediterranean vibe, through its friendly locals and fantastic dining scene. Check into a beachfront spa hotel for some pampering beside the sea. Laying claim to some of the peninsula’s best beaches, Las Galeras is a sleepy fishing village frequented by barefoot travellers from across the globe.

Whether you want to enjoy a relaxing holiday chilling out on gorgeous Caribbean beaches or experience an action-packed, Samana in the Dominican Republic is the perfect destination for a memorable getaway. Dive into the clear Caribbean waters, explore shipwrecks by the shore, or just sit out on the beach for days on end; when you are in Samana, you can have it all.

Holidays in Samana are what every beach lover has been waiting for; spend days completely relaxed under the sun, settled in a shore side restaurant or sunbathing under a coconut tree. Some of the Dominican Replublic’s most pristine beaches can be found along this coastline, and although some are only accessible on foot or by boat, the venture is well worth the effort. Its landscapes are enough to keep you enthralled for days, but if you want entertainment you can find plenty of it along the coast, with water sports, whale watching and boat tours all on offer.

Samana basks in the warmth of its Caribbean climate, gracing visitors with sun filled days throughout the year. September and October are usually the wetter months, but showers are often short lived. The northern breeze helps make the peninsula bearable even over the humid summer, but for comfortable exploring enjoy Samana holidays in the winter months for comfortable temperatures of 28C.



Playa Rincon is said to be one of the prettiest beaches in the world. The pure white sand and turquoise blue water has a backdrop of coconut trees and mountains – the idyllic holiday scene. It is relatively undeveloped and the waters are perfectly calm. Hop on a boat tour and embrace a bit of nature with a whale-watching tour, always from a safe distance. Visit the lush Cayo Levantado, only seven kilometres away from the peninsula and one of the top Samana attractions. Swim in the turquoise water and bask in the warmth of the Caribbean sun.
