- Playa RinconMar 11, 2014
Playa Rincon is a 1hour and 45 minute drive from Playa Bonita and well worth the effort to get there. Stunning, gorgeous, relaxing, fun, completely beautiful. Leave early in the morning, drink fresh juice or other libations and eat wonderful fresh fish and Dominican food right there on the beach. Swim, wade, sunbathe. You may want to drive to Las Galeras and El Cabito before you head back to Playa Bonita. Both are not far from the Playa Rincon turn off. If you do not want to drive, Flora Tours can set up a tour of the area for you. (as of 2014, the road to Playa Rincon has been paved)

Arrive at an open beach that is 3-4 miles long, with white sands and palm trees stretching as far as you can see, and lush green mountains in the background. You have it all to yourself as there is absolutely no one on it. No development, no lifeguard, restroom, nothing. Untouched beach with waves gently lap the shores, and soft powdery sand and warm water that invites you to jump in. You have found paradise.

Without a doubt, this is a breathtakingly beautiful beach--a must see if you're on the Samana Peninsula. Boat taxis in Las Galeras shuttle visitors here for around $14 per person round trip, a bit more if the boat isn't full on the outbound; it's pricey for a 20-minute boat ride but, ultimately worth it, especially if you spend the entire day here. To catch a ride, head to the main beach in Las Galeras--boats depart throughout the day starting around 9am. Last boat back is between 4-5pm.
