Javo Beach La Playita Beach - Las Galeras
Samaná, Dominican Republic
A small fishing village of Las Galeras in the country’s northeastern Samaná province enjoys the vibes the rest of the Caribbean used to have before the growth of the all-inclusive resorts. The town’s one main road ends at a narrow strip of a beach, La Playita, where local fishermen park their boats overnight. At the nearby family-run Villa Serena, guests partake in water yoga and meditation rituals before heading to El Cabito, a cliff-hugging dinner spot with fantastic views of the sun setting over the Rincon Bay.
