Samana Beaches

The beaches of Samana easily rank among the finest in both the Dominican Republic and the entire Caribbean.

Yet relatively few people know about them, much less visit them. That is not changing quickly despite Samana's own international airport near the little village of El Catey, 5 miles west of Sánchez. El Catey International has only modest air traffic and it tends to he highly seasonal, unlike the country's other beach resort areas.

You can find can easily locate the beach locations on this map of Samana. They're marked by palm trees and most are on the north coast.
