We loved this part of Punta Cana! So beautiful, even better than the Bavaro Beach area. Highly recommend you stay in this area or visit.

Very beautiful beach with an incredible view. The only challenge is finding a parking spot, on busiest days, Sunday, it will take you awhile to find a spot

While we came late afternoon, we still enjoyed our stay. It wasn't too crowded and the beach was enjoyable. The personnel was very attentive

This beach is part of a larger tourist development. There are rumours online about having to have your passport to get here. We had to go through a checkpoint and tell the security guard where we were going. We were doubling up with a trip...More

fantastic white calm beach with fine sand and lovely swimmable portions with light waves. Based on storm you may find some algae but typically they clean it fast. Must for Sunrise/sunset walk - Blue/Turquoise picturesque water. Not crowded; No salespersons or vendors. Few restaurants/shopping places...More

Best location? (6 Replies)
Where is the preferred area to stay in Punta Cana? Its so hard just researching and comparing all the resorts. I don't want to be too isolated... i.e. if we want to do any of-property activities, or see a town. Also, are the beaches all pretty similar? I had been looking at Sanctuary Cap, near Juanillo, but I see most of the resorts are clustered ina totally different area, near Bavaro. Please help!

Beaches are different. We prefer Bavaro area.
