About Las Galeras

"Las Galeras, located on the North Eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, is one of those places that has managed to stay off the radar of mass tourism and effortlessly provides that unique and ever-elusive experience that is getting harder to harder to find."

The numerous outrageously beautiful and sparsely populated beaches are an obvious reason to visit Las Galeras. With at least eight beaches in the area, each with its own charm, you are sure to find a favorite.

Playa Fronton
Playa Madama
Grand Paradise Beach

Surrounded by tropical forests, mountainous coconut groves, diverse geographical features, with exotic flora and fauna, Las Galeras offers great nature-oriented attractions. Recognized as a place of important bio diversity and outstanding natural beauty, large tracts of land are protected by the Dominican Government.

In Las Galeras you can still see, hear and smell the sights of authentic Dominican life. You will find yourself just as curious as the locals when the fishermen bring in their catch. Perhaps you will pick the fish you want to eat and have it cooked at the fish shack right on the beach.

The clip clop of donkeys' hoofs means food is being transported from the local farms to the shops in town and you might select a few bananas from a reed basket woven by the farmer.

The real treasures of Las Galeras are best explored at the slow rhythm of nature and you will quickly find yourself enticed by this pace.....so plan to stay awhile.

The culture of Las Galeras is still Dominican and it has not yet been sanitized into an homogeneous tourist beach resort - this is part of the charm of Las Galeras.
