Enjoy the clear azure waters and pristine white sand of Playa Madama, a beach flanked by verdant rolling hillsides, plantations, and cliffs. The secluded and untouristed nature of the spot make it ideal for snorkeling or relaxing on the soft sand with a book. Trails lead to the beach through picturesque and lush environs, but exercise caution if you're in a small group, as the remoteness of the area can leave you vulnerable to crime. Try to visit the beach as part of a boat tour to stay on the safe side. There are no restrooms on site, so plan ahead. Use our Las Galeras trip planner to add Playa Madama and other attractions to your Las Galeras vacation plans.
