Dominican Republic: Sea Views, White Sand, and a Secret Beach

Dominican Republic: Sea Views, White Sand, and a Secret Beach

Las Terrenas on the Dominican Republic’s Samana peninsula is a little piece of paradise.

The road south-east from Las Terrenas winds its way through hills clad with palm trees. This is how the first visitors found these hills. How nature intended. These aren’t farmed palms in tidy lines.

After a 30-minute drive the bay opens up in front of us. Glass-flat and bright blue with boats bobbing out to sea.

On board are tourists visiting the whales offshore. Driving along the coast from the cruise ship town of Samana the views are jaw-dropping. One cute two-bedroom, two-bath house I saw was built into the hillside on two levels.

The price: $69,000. It had these views:

From the deck of a new million-dollar home we watched whales play a few hundred yards away. The road ends at the white-sand beach at Las Galeras.

From here the only way to continue your journey to the legendary “secret beach” is with the help of a local boatman. No road will bring you there.
