We stopped at Macao Beach on the dune buggy adventure. It was stunning and is definitely on our list to go back the next time we're in Punta Cana

Macoa Beach was gorgeous. We had only 30 minutes stop during inland tour, but great waves and view. Yes the local vendors were many and agressive, but they respected our firm, polite "gracias, no"

This beach is simply idyllic. Deep ocean blue coloured water. Soft sand. Vendors provide any drinks that you might need. Just watch out for the surf. It can get quite rough at times.

We stayed at the Royalton Bavaro about 15 mins from Macao. I didn’t see any resorts in Macao. Royalton Bavaro was excellent.
