The fameous beach in Las Galeras « Playa Ricon »
This beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Perfect for swimming, Playa Rincon is a 5 km long white sand beach, surrounded by coconut palms and almond trees.
There are several ways to go ...
¬ By car: It is recommended to have a Jeep or an SUV for the 30 minutes ride on the dirt roads. We went there by taxi during our day tour of the hotels. This beach is worth seeing!
¬ By boat: From the public beach of Las Galeras, you can easily find a fisherman who will take you there. Approximately 20 minutes, $15 per person.
¬ On Foot: It s a 2 hour walk between deserted beaches and tropical forests.
The beach also has two restaurants, where you can eat very good seafood prepared in Dominican style. Ask for a « pan de coco », bread made with coconut. A cold beer will make you forget the trip to get there!
Playa Rincon is a secluded beach, surrounded by majestic mountains and lush vegetations. You will not see more than a dozen visitors, who tend to stay away from one another on the beach. There are few sellers and you can rent a chair for the day ($1.50). The sand is soft and comfortable. Bring your beach towel.
