There’s a reason this pristine stretch of white sand has been rated one of the top beaches in the world by magazines, travel guides and globetrotters alike. The scenic shores of Rincon Beach are some of the country’s most idyllic, and visitors say it’s not uncommon to have the crystal blue waters and open expanse of ocean all to yourself.
Enjoy an afternoon of horseback riding, or a relaxing snorkeling excursion into the pristine sea, where colorful fish and unique aquatic life abound. Dozens of lively watering holes provide travelers with the perfect spot to cool off over icy brews and frozen fruity drinks, and freshly boiled lobster proves a popular choice for hungry travelers to tuck into during a beachside lunch.
Rincon Beach is located about 15 miles (25 kilometers) from Samana. Travelers warn the ride from Las Terrenas can be extremely polluted, so it may be useful to wear a mask during the trip. And while the shores of Rincon are usually sparse with tourists, locals will still work hard to hock their wares to travelers.
