Beaches of the Grand Paradise Samana and Playa Las Galeras
The beach of the hotel Grand Paradise Samana, with a length of 450 meters, is located in the north-eastern peninsula of Samana, in the municipality of Las Galeras. The public beach « Playa Las Galeras » is located 1.5 km from the hotel. The peculiarity of the beach from the hotel Grand Paradise Samana is the large grassy area, with majestic palm trees, just steps from the beach. Those who do not like to have their feet in the sand, will love this hotel. This small and friendly hotel is located in a delightful setting!
Natural shade of palm trees on a vast grassy area of the hotel. Very impressive!
Furthermore, known as « The fishermen beach », Playa Las Galeras is the main beach of the Municipality of Las Galeras. Located at the end of the main road, you can not miss it! This beach has been designated « Blue Flag », which means crystal clear water, is not polluted. It seems that this is a good place for snorkeling, but we did not have time to put our gears and discover for ourselves!
You can buy fresh fish directly out of the water. It is the place for boat tours of the nearby beaches and also for whale watching (seasonal). There is also a typical restaurant on the beach. You can drink a good « Saoco » with coconut and rum and also for eating good typical Dominican food.
In the village of Las Galeras, there are several shops run by French. It is always surprising in a Hispanic country to see signs in French! The roads are not very beautiful in the village. You must be careful!
