Las Galeras of the Samaná Province Las Galeras of the Samaná Province

Las Galeras, one of the three municipal districts of the municipality of Santa Bárbara de Samaná , is located at the eastern end of the Samaná Peninsula.

It owes its name to the old warships known as galleys that were used to transport prisoners and slaves. In the middle of the 16th century, two of these galleys were housed in this place.

Las Galeras was originally a small fishing village graced with some natural beauty.

Among the most important economic activities that you can find here is fishing, coastal agriculture (coconut, yams & yautía) and tourism. Its beaches are among the most beautiful in the Dominican Republic and include Playa Rincón , Playa La Playita, Playa Frontón and Playa Madame.

In addition to its spectacular coastal landscapes, Las Galeras is recognized as one of the best fishing spots in the Samaná Peninsula. Other popular activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, horseback riding, and hiking.

The patron saint festivities are held every August in honor of San Sebastian, which includes activities such as parades and pilgrimages.
