The secret zone of the Dominican Republic: Bridges of Samana

This post is also available in: esEspañol (Spanish)

If you are looking for a destination which will surprise you with its spectacular beauty and tranquillity, we recommend visiting Samaná. The Samaná peninsula is in the north-east of the Dominican Republic. Lovely, open, fun, delightful… this province boasts amazing beaches which will take your breath away. And they are all very close to our hotels in the Dominican Republic.

Samaná is unique for its unspoilt nature, far from the modern world, which will show you the true Caribbean. It’s a “slow” destination where you can relax and enjoy the moment at your own pace. Float in the crystal-clear water of the Caribbean Sea while you close your eyes and feel at peace. This location is a natural paradise with no crowds or built-up areas. The bay is surrounded by a lush natural setting, with beautiful landscapes and villages nestled among the trees.
Yes, we’re head-over-heels in love with Samaná… and we aren’t the only ones. Did you know this is a favourite destination for film stars and pop idols? As well as having holiday homes in the area, they often come here to record music videos, like Enrique Iglesias with “Me Pasé” and the Dominican singer Prince Royce with his single “Morir Solo”. Royce’s video locations include Avenida de la Marina with its colourful little houses, the local beaches and sparkling sea, and the Brug bridge.
Perhaps the most interesting sights are the Samaná walking bridges or Brug Samaná. These footbridges were originally built to boost the province’s local economy. The bridges lead to Los Cayos, Cayo Linares, and Cayo Virgía.


As you cross the bridge you’ll see the boats moored in the bay, local people fishing, beautiful nature all around, and spectacular views of the breakwater and the entire bay. It’s a unique place which you shouldn’t miss if you visit the Samaná peninsula.
The Samaná bridges are a symbol of the province.

Enjoy an adventure or relax in comfort at any of our hotels in Samaná: Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo, Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa, Luxury Bahia Principe Samana, and Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado, where you’ll find truly all-inclusive luxury, idyllic beaches, relaxation and lots of fun.
