The most visited and developed section of Samaná, Las Terrenas is the perfect blend of a dreamy beach village and a cosmopolitan town. Its waterfront boasts multiple stunning beaches, as well as a variety of small hotels, international bistros, apparel and arts and crafts boutiques, local restaurants, and lively bars. While the white sand beaches located right in town are good for a swim, the surrounding Playa Bonita and Playa Cosón will take your breath away, perhaps as much as the delicious fresh seafood served on site. Nights come alive in Las Terrenas with dancing–from bachata to R&B, and top hits–along Pueblo de los Pescadores’ row of bars and lounges, uniting the area’s diverse residents under the stars.
