Moron Beach

Located on the north shore of the Samana Peninsula, Morón Beach is as secluded a beach as they come. There are days on end where no one visits this beach at all, which is quite a shame. While the surf is not too rough, the waves can get up to eight feet tall, making it great for body surfing, but not so great for snorkeling.

Positioned in the Samana Peninsula, Moron Beach is on the North East edge of Hispaniola. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you're staying nearby. If you plan to sunbathe or take a nap on a fairly secluded beach, you should venture a little farther from the city, and a little closer to Moron Beach.

How to Access The Beach

As you drive west from El Limon, you will cross a bridge then look for a sign directing you to Playa Morón. The road here can be rough, so a vehicle with excellent suspension is recommended.

Amenities and Ambiance

The shore of Playa Morón is flat with brown sand and lined with coconut palms. The waters, with consistently rolling waves, are aquamarine.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site.

Moron Beach offers visitors an idyllic and relaxing haven, thanks to the fact that the location that surrounds the beach won't be overly crowded.
