On of the riches of the Samaná peninsula is its biodiversity, which explains why it has two registered natural parks, the E Limon waterfall and the Haitises. The Samaná bay is the main area in the world for watching hump backed whales. Clave Verde offers easy access to all the natural attractions of the area. We recommend service providers who guarantee quality, a fair price and the security of those participating in excursions.
Las Terrenas village
A sleepy fishing village that has been transformed into a cosmopolitan, multicultural little town, without completely losing its identity.
This village is home to more than 3,000 foreign residents, mainly Europeans (the French dominating) and North Americans, who live there the whole year. Dominican culture, its music, food, rum and cigars mix with international cuisine of a surprising range and quality, fine wine, the international press, elegant boutiques… all resulting in a melting pot with a little from here, there and everywhere…
The Samaná peninsula offers miles of golden sand beaches surrounded by luxuriant vegetation. The nearest beach going west from Clave Verde is Calo Lima, 5 minutes by car, followed by Portille, Punta Popy, Las Terrenas, Las Ballenas, Playa Bonita and Coson. To the east are the beaches of El Limon, Moron, Lanza del Norte, Las Canas…
If you have an explorer’s spirit, we invite you to discover others at a greater distance, such as the Ermitano (access by sea), el Valle, Rincon, las Galeras beach and Madama (sea access).
Samana has the island beaches of Cayo Levantado. Any of these can be the centre of a good day out.
