Samana Bay Cayo Levantado

Samana Bay Info

The Samana peninsula has miles of virgin beaches. White and golden sand are predominant in the area. Beaches such as Coson, Playa Bonita, El Moron, El Limon, Las Canas, Las Galeras, Bahia Rincon, Punta Popi, are truly breath taking.

Every year Samana receives the visit of over 3,000 humpback whales. They make their migration to Samana’s warm waters to mate and to give birth. Whale whatching is the biggest attraction, with the season beginning in January-15 and ending March-15.

There are many cascades and waterfalls in the area, waiting to be explored. El Limon waterfall is one of the biggest attractions. Cascada del zumbador and casacada de lulu are some, to name a few. Because of the lush and thick vegetation in Samana, some cascades and waterfalls are still not accesible.

In the middle of the bay sits beautiful Cayo Levantado, a small island with one of the most impressive beaches in the Caribbean. Barbeque lunch, beach chairs, games and enterntaiment can be enjoyed every day. There is a local artisans market as well as stores for souvenirs.

Not to be missed is the Cave Mangrove by speedboat excursion. This excursion takes you to Los Haitises National Park, where there are 52 small islands, coves and bays. The speedboat makes it’s way thru mangroves on route to caves where pre columbian art can be admired.
