Ideal location for family getaways & low-key travel
Samara is a small sunny town with intact beaches and picture-perfect scenery. It's a 4 mile long, white sand beach surrounded by two exuberant forest hills. It has a superb coral reef and its own picturesque wooded island in the bay - Isla Chora, a perfect spot for birdwatchers. It is a beautiful and safe place for swimming and snorkeling. Samara is considered to be one of the safest beaches, making it an ideal location for family getaways and low-key travel. Three kilometers south of Samara Beach is its sister beach, Carrillo. Similar to Samara, Carrillo is a laidback beach town, but on a much smaller scale. While relaxing, take in some amazing views of the lush mountain ranges in the distance, which provide a unique backdrop for visitors to the beach.
