Playa Bonita

Last Sunday we spent the day at Playa Bonita in Samana.  Boyfriend and I had never ventured our way up to Samana, mostly because the toll costs $50 freaking dollars round trip!  Sheesh.

When we were nearly there we stopped at an overpass to admire the view.  It might be hard to see from these iPhone pics, but all the little trees below the cliff are palm trees!  Everything was so green.

We spent the afternoon at a small French hotel and had lunch at their little restaurant on the beach.  I had a delicious local fish fillet smothered in a creamy champagne sauce with mushrooms. 

After lunch we walked along the beach and swam.  My dad spent a whole hour inside the water - he said it was the longest time he had spent inside the sea in at least 25 years!  The water was so warm and clear.

I love visiting new beaches in the Dominican Republic, but I'm afraid I'm almost running out!  This weekend boyfriend and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary at Juan Dolio beach :)  

Hope your weekend is just as sunny as ours!
