I love Macao, this is the best place to spend your Sunday, I hope this remain as is it's now because without this little heaven we are death. Beach is gorgeous and people is nice.

Beautiful place !!! NO seaweeds, just 9km from Punta Cana and it is another world. It was several days that I was sad about seaweeds, but now the holidays will start!!

On a tour we stopped at Macao beach. If we would have known this beach before, we would have gone there because our beach at the hotel had a lot of algues and this one was crystal clear.

This beach was magnificent. The beach at our resort was not even close to what Macao beach was. We regret not having our swim suits to go swimming.

Was our favorite part of our trip to the Dominican Republic!! This beach is so beautiful with its clear waters, white sand, & no seaweed. You could get surf lessons or just swim in the beautiful water. Such an amazing beach!!!

A nice little beach, but loud music playing, a lot of salesmen (also with animals such as monkeys, lizards and parrots) trying to sell you pictures. Came here with the tourist-trap 'Adventure Boogies' tour, so expect a lot of noise from the hundreds of dune...More

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