Samana (Santa Barbara de Samana) is a port city in northeastern Dominicana. It is located on Samana Bay's northern coast. Samana is a major Caribbean tourism travel destination and very popular for whale-watching. The city's population is around 110,000.

Most of the province's territory is occupied by Sierra de Samana - mountain range with steep slopes. The highest elevation (Monte Mesa) is 605 m (1980 ft).

The town Santa Barbara was first mentioned in the late-15th-century (1493) when Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) made the last stop of his first voyage to the New World here. He landed on what is today Rincon Beach (Playa Rincon).

Municipality's main economic activities are agriculture, commercial fishing and tourism. The boost to the local economy happens in January-March with the migration of thousands of North Atlantic humpback whales. Each year, the marine mammals come to Samana Bay to give birth.

In July 2022 started the construction of a dedicated cruise port. Currently, Port Samana (locode DOPUD) is a tender cruise port where the ships anchor at sea and their passengers are ferried via the ship's tender boats.
