Las Galeras

The historic fishing village of Las Galeras is stationed along the east coast in Santa Barbara on the Samana Peninsula. Travelers venture to this quiet town for its idyllic palm-lined beaches and easy access to Rincon Beach via the Las Galeras jetty. The village is within close proximity to Playa Fronton, another popular beach that’s home to some of Dominican Republic’s best snorkeling. Travelers also love the Doca del Diabla (which means “mouth of the devil”) located about four miles (7 km) south of town. Cool ocean waters rush through this natural rock formation and spring into the air, causing a serious sky-high splash.
