Private La Playita Beach Retreat

Offering the same views as the famous Playa Rincon, but reached in half the time, La Playita is the perfect spot for guests looking to get away from the crowded cruise lines' beach.

After boarding your transportartion at the pier, travel approximately 35 minutes to La Playita, located near the sleepy little fishing town of Las Galeras. The water here is just like what you see on postcards, and the panorama of mountains that stretch out into the ocean will surely take up one of your camera's digital memory cards.

During your free time at the beach, a typical Dominican buffet of fish and chicken is provided. Drinks on the beach are included in the price of your tour, however, drinks served inside the restaurant are not included and are served at an additional charge.

As preferences can vary when it comes to how you spend your time at the beach, all other items are provided on an a la carte basis so you can create your own customized perfect day at the beach. Lounge chairs are available to rent for $5 US and massages are available right on the beach for $25 US (half-hour) or $50 US (full hour).

La Playita is one of the best places on the whole peninsula to snorkel, as the reef creates a natural breakwater that keeps the water calm. Feel free to bring your own snorkel gear, or you can rent it for $15 US.

There is a dive shop right on the beach that can usually set up a dive for you (not included and pricing varies), allowing you to see the manta rays and a host of other marine life not far off the beach.

Please Note: You will have approximately 3 hours at the beach. Your guide will be available the entire time to answer questions and assist with equipment rental.
