Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana

(4.4/5 based on 14,000+ 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.

  • This beach was awesome. We took a yacht to get to island. We had food waiting for us and it was something we won't forget.  more »
  • Very nice beach. The water is transparent, a little colder at this time to be Caribbean, but very enjoyable. There is possibility to make a variety of water sports

  • Beautiful Bavaro Beach, weather, the crystal clear water. The bad: many algae in the sea, the water is not as warm, but beautiful!
