Top Five Beaches You Don’t Want To Miss In Punta Cana

August 19, 2012 / bookitnow, Dominican Republic, Friends Posts /

Located in the eastern most province of the Dominican Republic, the area known as Punta Cana is popular tourist destination that is known for stunning beaches and warm Caribbean breezes. Situated on many of these white sand beaches are popular resorts, like the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana, that offer all in one comfort and easy beach access. Whether you enjoy fun and games, long walks, snorkeling, scuba diving, or simply relaxing in paradise, the beaches of Punta Cana have it all.

Areno Gordo Beach.

Also known as the Fat Sand Beach, Areno Gordo is home to wide swaths of gently sloping sand. Standing just outside the Majestic Colonial, this beach is perfect for anyone looking for a day of fun and excitement. Frisbee, volleyball, windsurfing, and kayaking are joined by options for kids of all ages to frolic in the warm waves of the sea. With plenty to do, and yet enough room to relax, Areno Gordo is a great beach for couples and families alike.

Macao Beach.

It is rare that a tourist destination is also a local favorite, but such is the case of Macao Beach. Located just to the north of Areno Gordo, this largely undeveloped public beach is a must for Punta Cana visitors. Enjoy the local cuisine at one of the beach shacks serving food and beverages, or just kick back in the shade and enjoy the vast space and rolling waves ahead of you. Once you are ready to get moving, Macao is great for surfers of all skill levels. Didn’t bring your surfboard? Not a problem. Macao Surf Camp offers lessons, surfboard, and boogie board rentals.

El Cortecito.

Located in the heart of Punta Cana, the El Cortecito Beach is just steps away from a number of hotels, restaurants, and shops. In short, as a beach town and fisherman’s village rolled into one, the area might well be called Punta Cana’s downtown. Despite that, El Corectio still manages to be a wonderful beach with wide, open slopes and all the scenic beauty you would expect of Punta Cana.

Bavaro Beach.

Another town beach lined with shops, Bavaro is one of the most popular of all of the beaches in the Punta Cana region. Enjoy shopping with sand between your toes, or head on down to the water and relax in the crystal clear waters. The beach has a number of water related activities from snorkeling and scuba diving, to fishing, boat rides, and more.

Cabeza de Toro.

The islands of the Caribbean are known for their white sand beaches and Cabeza de Toro may be one of the most beautiful in the region. South of the Majestic Colonial All Inclusive Resort, Cabeza de Toro features miles of soft sand perfect for long romantic walks. The beach lies within a closed bay that is perfect for snorkeling and scuba expeditions. Meanwhile, the calm and quiet waters offer the perfect spot for a day of relaxation.
