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.

Situated in the Samana Peninsula, Moron Beach is on the North East edge of Hispaniola. You might want to drop by whether or not you're staying very close. Moron Beach is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's one of the best spots for getting away from vacation stresses, like overly crowded restaurants and attractions. Most other beaches in the Dominican Republic may be just as beautiful, but are usually more crowded because they're frequented by tourists looking for a lively scene.

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.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline.

If you happen to desire shores which offer an angelic experience, then think about trying out Moron Beach; it's hidden away within a more natural section of Hispaniola.
