The beach was beautiful and it was quiet. The bathroom was surprisingly clean. Bring money to buy gifts, keep your drink choices simple.

Words cannot describe the beauty of this well kept secret. Its a little tricky finding it. Be mindful of hand written sign stating the way to the beach. Once the road gets bumpy , you're almost there. Playa Rincon has it all. Pristine sand, turquoise...More

Las Galeras to Playa Rincon is a 1/2 hr drive (18 km). we went from Samana to Playa Rincon and it was an hour drive (without the stop to visit the farm). Hope this helps!
