Bavaro Beach, Bavaro

4.5
#1 of 560 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.

  • Paradise just gorgeous. Being there in October twice not as much seaweed as in April. Ocean blue is a great resort  more »
  • We stayed with my family in February. The weather was great! Ideal for to be in the water and the sky without a single cloud! The beaches are super cute! This time there was algae. Spacious, for those who like to walk. The best hotel chains are on this beach. And there are shops and vendors of crafts in this area for anyone who wants to take some souvenir at an economical price!

  • I’ve seen lots of posts in the forum asking about seaweed so I thought I would post some pics. These are from Monday, July 2 around 4:30 in the afternoon in front of Paradisus Punta Cana.  more »

  • The Dominican Republic offers excellent beach locations, Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana is a fine example. There are packages - all inclusive - and we visited. The ability to 'forget' the usual routines of life, finding all needs met by a rather friendly and professional staff was great. We were able to eat at five different restaurants, each specializing in a different style of cuisine. Breakfast was a delight, including tropical fruits. Lunch could be had by the beach, as there are small stations where to get meats cooked to perfection, or seafood, such as shrimp and lobster. Dinner is the only time we 'dressed for' as most of the day we were in our swimsuits and shorts. The experience is simply unforgettable, the prices reasonable, the location excellent.
  • The best beach in the area for good reasons. Especially the section in front of the Bavaro Palace Hotel. Soft white sand With calm clear turquoise water. Plenty of shade from the palm trees if you need. Just perfect.
  • One of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been to. Pure white sand, turquoise shimmering water color, no waves so it’s perfect for paddle boarding and kids to play in, but there’s enough wind for small sail boats and wind surfing. What more can you ask for... And on top of that there’s plenty of palm trees lining the shore for shade and oceanfront resorts have plenty of beach areas so chairs are not packed together. Perfect as can be.
  • Great vacation! First time doing all inclusive.
  • Awesome white sandy beach. A lot of algae though.
