Coson Beach

Coson Beach is located in the north east coast of the Dominican Republic. Surrounded by not much else than miles of forest, this beach is often deserted, which makes it the perfect place for a quiet getaway.

Located in the Samana Peninsula, west-southwest of Las Terrenas, Coson Beach is on the North East coast of Hispaniola. You should consider dropping by even if you are not staying particularly close by. It's often said that Coson Beach is perfect for escaping the typical tourist haunts. Many of the other beaches in the Dominican Republic may be just as refreshing as Coson Beach, but are usually more cramped because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.

Amenities and Ambiance

Coson Beach is backed by trees with a river to the west that dumps right into the water, which is a aquamarine color.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
