Famous Walking Bridges of Samana
The Walking Bridges to Nowhere in Samana are the Icons of the lovely small town of Samana. Built in the late 1960's, these famous bridges where intended to have at the end a Casino Complex and a Restaurant-Bar. Only later, in the mid-eighties was open a two level Restaurant-Bar that lasted only a few years and now only the structure remains. You will find many Park Benches with rest areas spread along the 1.3 kilometers lenght of walking distance. This is a favorite place among locals and foreigners alike to take a stroll early in the morning or late afternoon before sunset. The access to the entrance of the Bridges is at the bottom of the Cayacoa Beach.
