The beach is okay, but full of seaweed. There is also a big sewer pool right in front of some resorts. Yuk.

A nice Caribbean beach. Beautiful views. Unfortunately very uncomfortable due to a large number of often very pushy beach vendors. Our money was stolen by one of the vendors when we were relaxing there. Despite hin being caught and police/security the money was not returned....More

Nice long beach with super clean water. A lot of seaweed but it did not take away from it at all. Water perfect temperature in December.

Bath water and a beautiful blue. Sand is like brown sugar. I strongly recommend this beach for your wedding or that special vacation.

No matter where you are staying in the Punta Cana area make sure you visit this beautiful beach. This is unlike most of the beaches in the area as it is set in a Bay with tranquil waters and incredible views.

We stayed at the Mirage complex. You are on the ocean beach as well as have access to the lazy pool. Hospitality is amazing! Food is so-so, nothing spectacular. Ironically, you can visit all the Mirage complex's, but you... More
