Discover Playa Rincon Dominican Republic

The turning for Playa Rincon is about 10 minutes before reaching the village of Las Galeras in the Samana Peninsula, northeast of the country.

Due to the rocky dirt track, the beach is difficult to access unless you have a 4x4 or a buggy. You can also negotiate for locals to take you on the back of their motorbikes for a small fee.

The beach itself is unlike most beaches in the north of the country; a long sweeping stretch of fine white sand encased by the bright turquoise waters of the North Atlantic. There are often parties in the area, close to the handful of beach shack cafés on the south end of the beach. It is also possible to jon horseback excursions. The advantage of Playa Rincon is that there are rarely a lot of tourists here, meaning that it's a great place to come to relax away from the bustle of Las Galeras for the day.
