Playa Bonita, Las Terrenas

4.6
#1 of 22 in Parks in Samana Province
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Get away from the crowds at Playa Bonita, a small and secluded beach that offers a welcome contrast to others on the Samana Peninsula. The crescent-shaped beach has a castaway feel, with a rugged but inviting atmosphere. More exposed than other beaches nearby, the wind and water come on strongly here, making it particularly good for surfers, boogie boarders, or people who enjoy a bit more action offshore. Quiet, restful, and a little wild, the beach still has much to offer in the way of restaurants and other amenities, with businesses set just back from the sands.
