White sands, white waves breaking, and a whole lot of fat white people. This really isn't the beach for people interested in discovering more about the Dominican Republic.

Lovely beach, strong breeze and reasonably calm waters. Plenty of activities and beach bars offering soft and alcoholic drinks. Water slightly too rough for young children.

It's really the dream Caribbean! Fine white sand, green palms, azure sea under warm sun and blue sky are perfect. Bavaro Beach is wide and long. On the beach, everyone can find a place to relax. But you will never be alone. Hotel resorts are...More

Bavaro Beach is beautiful. All the staff from resorts on this beach work very hard to clear the seaweed. It's quiet, relaxing, there are not load of people trying to sell you things. I hope to walk on this beach again one day :)

We did. It seems safe. I would say be cautious like you would other places. Be moderate in dress and keep flashy stuff at home like fancy purses, jewelry... You don't want to yell out dollar sign. People will approach you to... More
