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.

Set in the Samana Peninsula, west-southwest of Las Terrenas, Coson Beach is on the North East coast of Hispaniola. You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Coson Beach stands out because it's the ideal location for escaping the hustle of the Dominican Republic's urban areas. Many of the other beaches in the Dominican Republic may be just as beautiful, but tend to be busier 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, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
