Very beautiful beach.
Very beautiful beach. There are vendors who can be pushy, and we wish they had an option for multiple tenders going back and forth to the boat. BBQ & open bar was good, but no white wine.

We loved Cayo Levantado. It is gorgeous. But thankfully we got there early - 9am- by about 10-11am, it was so crowded and people had trouble finding chairs whereas we got one right on the edge in front of the ocean. There's a great little tiki hut there with reasonably priced drinks and you can get a Coco Lobo in a coconut with natural coconut water and all for only $5, or a pina colada in a pineapple! There are vendors, but we didn't feel they were overly pushy. They offer massages on the beach and other trinkets. There is also opportunity to snorkel.... **BEWARE** I don't know that they thoroughly sanitize their snorkeling equipment.. 3 days after this excursion, my husband gets his first cold sore breakout ever. There's no other way he could have gotten oral herpes- he doesn't share drinks or food with anyone ever (not even me!). Bring your own snorkel equipment or take your chances that they may not clean it properly. Read Less

We loved Cayo Levantado!! We booked the excursion through NCL because we knew that the closest really nice beach in the Samana area was about 45 mins away. We were tendered to the small island and it took about 15 mins and the views of the ship from down in the small boat was amazing and also the beautiful Dominican mountain views. The beach at Cayo was spectacular! Turqouise water with breathtaking snorkeling. There was a volleyball court which we enjoyed and a great beach bar. There was some shopping huts with coffee, arts, handmade jewelry, and all Dominican made items. It was an amazing day!! Read Less

Beautiful beach very little 'harrassment' great food and drinks just the chair situation if you are not first over you won't have one. Water is gorgeous so if you want to chill out this is the place.
