Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana

(4.4/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Bavaro Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Punta Cana trip builder.
