Samana peninsula has miles of virgin beaches. White
and golden sand are predominant in the area. Beaches
such as Coson, Playa Bonita, El Moron, El Limon, Las
Canas, Las Galeras, Bahia Rincon, Punta Popi, are
truly breath taking.
Every year Samana receives the visit of over 3,000 humpback whales.
They make their migration to Samanaís warm waters
to mate and to give birth. Whale whatching is the
biggest attraction, with the season beginning in January-15
and ending March-15.
There are many cascades and waterfalls in the area,
waiting to be explored. El Limon waterfall is one
of the biggest attractions. Cascada del zumbador and
casacada de lulu are some, to name a few. Because
of the lush and thick vegetation in Samana, some cascades
and waterfalls are still not accesible.
In the middle of the bay sits
beautiful Cayo Levantado, a small island with one
of the most impressive beaches in the Caribbean. Barbeque
lunch, beach chairs, games and enterntaiment can be
enjoyed every day. There is a local artisans market
as well as stores for souvenirs.
Not to be missed
is the Cave Mangrove by speedboat excursion. This
excursion takes you to Los Haitises National Park,
where there are 52 small islands, coves and bays.
The speedboat makes itís way thru mangroves on route
to caves where pre columbian art can be admired.
