Las Terrenas

LAS TERRENAS: on the northern coast of the peninsula of Samana ( the extreme north -east of the Dominican Republic , however, definitely a place of the most remote and unspoiled by mass tourism) , sandwiched between the sunny hills , dotted with palm trees and surrounded by many beaches practically virgin nature with a rainbow of bright and vivid colors which are a real paradise , flanked by about 20 km of beaches with a calm sea and full of tropical fish.
Las Terrenas is known for its long beautiful beach and for the presence of several restaurants and beach bars serving delicious specialties of local and international cuisine. Despite now presenting many hotel facilities, many of which are international, this area has so far kept its natural charm intact .
Las Terrenas has many local restaurants that overlook the sea , where you can enjoy, among other things, the delicious " fish with coconut milk " and the national dish " sancocho ". It also offers many places such as nightclubs and bars to spend your evenings with friends .
The main road leads to a beach that branches off to the right towards El Portillo ( small local airport ) with the well-known Playa Punta Popi, while in the opposite direction shows the beautiful and peaceful Playa Las Ballenas , so called because of a huge rock that can be seen from the beach and has the perfect shape of a whale that rises from the sea.
Beautiful beaches to visit are also about two kilometers from the village , known as Playa Bonita and Playa Coson , much appreciated by those who love windsurfing and kite -surfing.
Las Terrenas is without doubt the perfect location as a base for excursions in the peninsula of Samana! Close to the famous National Park of Los Haitises, located in Samana Bay. Every year from January to mid-March meet about three
thousand whales to give birth to their young Humpback whales which are among the largest existing whales in the Atlantic. Up to 18 feet long, weighing between 55 and 65 tons. When they come to the surface , often " do pirouettes " and blow a jet of up to 3 meters in height.
Excursions are organized, mostly by experts of the local population and at reasonable prices allow you to see this wonderful show from really close!
The county seat is Santa Barbara de Samana, overlooking the bay of the same name in the south of the peninsula, the most important tourist resort of Las Terrenas is located about 40 km away.
