One of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Las Terrenas area which you have almost entirely to yourself. It is an sandy beach stretching a couple of kilometers, and it is so relaxing just walking or running along the beach.

The sand is soft and the clean blue/turquise ocean is refreshing. Sometimes the waves are big and you have to be careful, currents are strong.

There is a small nice restaurant by name Valerio right on the beach serving good fish and fresh coctails, and they have a nice sunset view.

You can reach the beach just by walking west from the beach La Bonita. The first part of the beach has villas all along, but there are no restrictions passing and there is no crowd anywere.

More west, there are still just a few accomodations, but constructions are ongoing so in a few years it may be a completeley different picture. So if you love empty and private sandy beaches with no crowd, take the chance to visit it before it is destroyed.

You can also reach the beach by car or scooter from the main road. There are signs showing where to exit.

Enjoy, we did :)

if you don't mind windy beaches, then Playa Coson is worth seeing.
very long beach, you can walk for around an hour.
the Restaurant Luis is great; delicious food, seafood is their specialty.
really happy we've seen it, but it was so windy (it's almost always is) that we wouldn't go again (we like swimming and sun bathing).

A long stretch of beach near Las Terrenas. We parked right where the river met the ocean. To the east of the river, the ocean water was very cold. To the west of the river, the ocean water was so warm! My kids took turn between playing w the waves in the ocean and then the cool calm river water.

There are many great beaches in Las Terranas, but this is a truly wonderful one. This is mainly because a river winds its way through palm trees to the sea, and the landscape is absolutely stunning. A photographer’s dream.

There are a couple of good tavernas on the beach.

The sea can be rough here, and there’s a bit of an undertow, so it might not be good for little children. But if you just jump around in the shallows, it’s absolutely fine.

Very nice beach. A little wavy but very clean. Better than the beach at the resort I was staying at Portillo. I recommend this beach.

-It is about 20mns away from Las Terrenas city (we were at the Albachiara Hotel) we found it to be in a little bit remote location but it is absolutely worthy to visit. (Hope you coming in your own vehicle or rent one cause I heard taxis are about us40 and you will get bored as hell if you don’t go out of your hotel)

-There is a restaurant called Luis coson and is right on the beach. They serve drinks, coconut water in the coconut and to eat they offer octopus, shrimps, fish and lobster. As a side dish they offer french fries, white rice and red beans or fried plantains. It is the cheapest place to eat that I found in LT. They accept credit card but bring cash cause sometimes they run out of electricity or the signal can be bad. The waiter had to go with us to the city to find an ATM machine... (they have a tank with water to wash off the sand and I saw they have long chairs but don’t know if they charge extra. And For your info, they don’t have high chair if you come with children)

-I wouldn’t suggest to stay in a hotel that is located in coson though because there is nothing to see or to do over there, just the beach.

-If you stay in Las Terrenas town, near to punta popy, las terrenas beach, playa las ballenas or el pueblo de los pescadores, you will have more things to see and do near by even if you don’t have a vehicle. And you can also order food from the App “Komida” which I don’t think could be possible if you stay in Coson. And remember the curfew starts at 9pm so you probably would like to order something to eat after 9.

-Make sure to carry your repellent because you can find mosquitoes in the whole town specially in coson🦟 (put it before you get out of the car, don’t wait till they bite you to use it)
-Also bring bottled water because it’s very expensive in Las Terrenas (the regular price is RD$15 or RD$20 for 16oz but in Las Terrenas you will find it at RD$50 and RD$60) if you guys get thirsty you will have to buy several bottles cause one wont be enough for more than one person.
-If coming with children maybe you could bring mosquito nest for the crib, just in case. (I didn’t have to use mine but you never know)
-there are restaurants and bars that are closed on week days so please check the places you want to visit before you go
-there are places that don’t take credit card
-there are several places that don’t have high chair and some of them have just one
-download the App Komida to check the menu and prices of some restaurants in the city
-recommend restaurants: campo kitchen, dolce vita, porto, el balcon del mosquito

As guests at "Sublime Samana Hotel & Residences", the beautiful beach of "Playa Cosón" was just like home - at only a few steps away! An exclusive beach, with calm crystal clear waters, white sands and no crowds (at least when we were there). Days of leisure and peace at a lovely beach. At any trip to the Dominican Republic, do include a few days at "Playa Cosón" in Las Terrenas. If you'll dare to miss it, you'll regret forever! Enjoy!

a beautiful beach that goes for an hour in either direction.
there are a couple small places to grab a beer or a meal that are very popular with the locals and only a couple hotels so the beach is extremely quite to enjoy the long walks.

Visited in early January.It took a 15 minutes drive from Portillo where we were staying.It is a public beach.First task was to get a table at restaurant Luis and then head to select the fishes we were going to degust.Waiter comes and ordered drinks and more seafood from what was available that day.Headed to the ocean,sandy bottom,moderate waves and a beautiful experience.Dont expect fast service but who cares when you are having a great time.The grilled fish was excellent.
