Samana Bay, Samana Province

#3 of 8 in Nature in Samana Province
Samana Bay represents a prime breeding spot for humpback whales, and many visitors come with the hope of seeing the giant marine creatures. Observe the whales from the shore or take a boat onto the bay to observe from a safe but closer distance. The town along the shore offers shopping for local products, and the area also serves as a nesting site for pelicans and frigate birds, which are sometimes spotted amongst the mangrove trees that line nearby rivers. In town you'll find several markets, but be prepared to be approached by locals looking for a sale. Start your trip to Samana Province by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • The samana peninsula is a beautiful place. on a trip to Bacardi Island. the devil's mouth was visited. and a wild beach on the Atlantic. only we were on a tour from Misha. the white beaches of Bacardi Island. star marine. Atlantic waves.... In general, it is worth going there. but I don't tell you everything, because each agent has his own tour.

  • Nice tour, first a rather long bus ride, about two hours, then a boat crossing to reach Samana. Another section by bus to reach a small center where you can enjoy and buy coffee, tea and cocoa, as well as handmade cigars. Prices all in all modest. You reach the Ranch from where you walk a stretch in the woods of about 20 minutes on horseback. In the end a walking stretch a bit challenging for those who are not trained, but nothing impossible. At the end here appears the waterfall, possibility to take a bath and rest. Return, lunch and stop at Cayo Levantado for a bath and some sun. Eventually I return by boat and bus.
