Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana

4.4
#1 of 399 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.

  • Spectacular, beautiful beach, surrounded by Palm trees, water crystal. Extensive people out walking. You go through the cortecito where to find many handicrafts for purchase.

  • Very nice beach. Calm seas and a dazzling color. Near the center of Punta Cana. And around the region of the great hotels too. Busy beach. A great time for family.
