“Great surfing spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Waves were fairly predictable and easy to jump over if needed. Great for learning how to surf as it is very shallow. I can see why the locals like to frequent the beach, it is beautiful!

“Peddlers can be annoying...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The beach was very scenic but it was hard to enjoy with every peddler swarming to the tourists to buy overpriced unauthentic goods.

“BEST BEACH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

JUST SIMPLY BREATHTAKING! The water was crystal clear with a beautiful turqoise color. The sand was so pure and soft. It was a picture perfect setting!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We made a stop here on both excursions (Punta Cana Boggie Ride and Higuey Tour with Punta Cana Mike) - great beach with only a few people and are not restricted by resort access - it's always nice to know that the locals have a piece of their paradise too!

“Great Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Macao Beach was a great escape from all of the people on the resorts. The beach was so secluded. Additionally, we were not bothered by anyone to buy anything.
