Punta Cana is one of the most beautiful areas of the Dominican Republic: located on the eastern tip of the island, it is washed by the warm waters of the Caribbean and boasts some of the best beaches in the world.

The virgin beaches of turquoise waters, white sand and coconut trees, in a warm, pleasant climate, appear to be tailor made for disconnecting from worldly affairs and experiencing sheer bliss.

The transparent waters and impressive reefs are an invitation to enjoying diving and sports fishing. The abundant marine fauna will allow you to go whale sighting and even swim alongside dolphins. Alongside the beach destinations designed for resting, you can practice a variety of water sports. And if golf is your game, you’ll enjoy some of the best golf courses along the coast, including designer courses by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, George Fazio, Pete Dye and Nick Faldo.

It is worth your while to see the beaches of Punta Cana from the sea. You can rent a catamaran or visit the paradisiac islands of Saona and Catalina. Or you can go on a diving tour of the reefs and admire the spectacular ecosystem.

If you love the water and the sand and wish to relax on the beach, there are two major options: Playa Juanillo, the quintessence of Dominican beaches, with pristine white sand and crystal-clear waters, or Playa Blanca, a postcard beach with shallow turquoise water that is ideal for children and adults. Now if you’re into surfing, head for Playa Macao, north of Playa Bávaro, where you can rent the gear or take surf classes.

Watching the wonderful sunset in Punta Cana while sipping a daiquiri is the perfect finale for a day in paradise!
