Las Terrenas, a charming town in the north of Samana

Las Terrenas, a scenic beach lying in the north of the province of Samana at the north eastern coast of the Dominican Republic.

History and Background

In the year 1946, the then president (Trujillo) gave an order for the relocation of the rural population of Santo Domingo to Las Terrenas where they would work as farmers and fishermen. This fishing village slowly blossomed into a tourist hotspot due to government and foreign investments in infrastructure. Its development into a tourist area is also owed to its natural beauty as Las Terrenas boasts miles of white sand beaches which line its coasts and clear majestic waters. Though founded in 1946, the town was already known for its association with Samaná as the province was an active and well-known participant in the slave trade in the 17th century .The port of Samaná ushered in peoples from Africa, Europe and Asia. These, along with the native Taino population, account for the multi and mixed-race population observable in Las Terrenas.
