Bavaro Beach, Bavaro

4.4
#1 of 394 in Outdoors in Dominican Republic
Backed by resort hotels, the white sands of Bavaro Beach stretch along the paradisal eastern coastline of the Dominican Republic. Azure waters lap the sun-drenched sands of this wide beach, an ideal spot for resting under a shady palm with a cold drink and a good book. If you're looking for a more active experience, you can swim, sail, or snorkel just offshore. To get away from the water for a while, play a round at one of the nearby golf courses or explore the strip of shops offering the usual tourist-oriented souvenirs and essentials. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Punta Cana holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Bavaro Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful beach of clear waters. At the time of our hotel was clean the sand every day, but walking down the beach at the time of other hotels had lots of seaweed. Great for hiking. The sea was agitated in every day we went. The water doesn't get to be blue, but it's beautiful. Great choice for families.
