Fodor's Expert Review Playa Rincón
Remote Playa Rincón, a beautiful, white sand beach, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire region. Relatively undeveloped, there are no facilities per se, but local ladies will sell you lobster and fish in coconut sauce with rice, and cold drinks. (However, determine that your lobster is alive before you buy it.) Other vendors may have beach chairs or sell bracelets and kitschy souvenirs or massage and braiding services. The water can be rough, but there are some calmer areas. The beach is cleaned regularly but not often enough. You can reach Rincón by boat, bus, or car from Las Galeras, with a boat the better option. Driving here takes about 30 minutes from town. Theft is a real problem here, so when swimming, watch your belongings, and don't bring valuables, and don't stay late. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: partiers; snorkeling; swimming; walking.
