Things to do in  Punta Cana

Welcome to Punta Cana

The sand and sea destination of Punta Cana is nestled on the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, 121 miles (196 kilometers) east of bustling Santo Domingo. This is the Caribbean paradise you’ve read about: Soft, white-sand beaches stretch along the entire coast, dotted by arching palm trees and lapped by rolling waves. If you’re visiting in search of lazy days and relaxed sunbathing, you won’t be disappointed, but there’s also plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventure. Snorkel on a catamaran cruise, dune buggy through ancient palm groves and tobacco plantations, parasail over pristine beaches and lush forests, or hit the links at some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean.

Top 10 attractions in Punta Cana

#1

Macao Beach (Playa Macao)

star-4.52,444
Clear blue waters and white sandy beaches make Macao an ideal spot to experience the real Caribbean. Because it’s public, this beach attracts both far-off travelers and close-to-home locals. Visitors won’t have to worry about aggressive vendors or crowded shores, either, making this an ideal spot for a peaceful morning stroll or an active outdoor afternoon. Travelers can lounge in the sand, boogie board or learn to surf near Macao Beach’s bigger breakers. And for those who prefer to stay dry on land and keep out of the water, an afternoon horseback ride still offers stunning coastal views and fresh saltwater air, without the hassle of getting wet.More

Coco Bongo Punta Cana

Whether it’s the first stop of the night, or the last stop in Dominican Republic, CoCo Bongo guarantees a fun, memorable and entertaining night out!More

Regarded as one of the Dominican Republic's most exclusive and scenic courses, La Cana has sand dunes, fairways, and tees that are close enough to the turquoise water that you would think you were golfing at the beach.More
