Top Beaches in Punta Cana

By Viator, January 2018

4.5 712 Reviews | Add your review

Punta Cana beaches in the Dominican Republic are ideal picture of a waterfront paradise with their pristine white sand, turquoise waters, and countless palm trees. Here are our picks for the best Punta Cana beaches and what you can do while you’re there.

Bavaro Beach (Playa Bavaro)
As one of the largest and most popular beaches in the area, the town of Bavaro is lined with small shops and dotted with luxurious all-inclusive resorts. Most boat trips and snorkeling excursions to places like Saona Island (Isla Saona) leave from Bavaro Beach.

Macao Beach (Playa Macao)
The public beach of Macao feels relatively untouched. It's a great spot to enjoy water sports, including surfing, windsurfing, and parasailing. Don’t miss the chance to get muddy on a Macao buggy adventure.

Uvero Alto
Located far from the tourist activity of the main beaches, Uvero Alto is quieter than most and often reached by boat trip or off-roading adventure.

Playa Blanca
Its name translates to “white beach,” so it's no surprise that Playa Blanca has some of the most beautiful white sands in the country. The waters are calm here, and this stretch of sand can be accessed by dune buggy.

Cabeza de Toro Beach
Surrounded by tropical forest with palm trees and wildlife close at hand, Cabeza de Toro Beach is a great spot for snorkeling and getting in touch with nature.

Cap Cana 
Located at the eastern tip of the coast, Cap Cana is famous for golfing and for its popular beaches where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea.
