Juanillo Beach (Playa Juanillo) Tours

Juanillo Beach (Playa Juanillo)
A former fishing village on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, Juanillo Beach is today one of the region's most desirable stretches of white-sand beach. Wide open, powdery soft, and lined with palm trees, this stretch of sand runs from Cap Cana Marina to the Sanctuary Cap Cana Golf & Spa Resort. While open to the public, the beach is only accessible through Cap Cana Resort, making it a calm and quiet place to soak up some rays.

The Basics
A hidden gem in Punta Cana, Juanillo Beach is far less frequented that more popular stretches of shore in the area, meaning it's a nice spot to avoid the crowds. Travelers based in Punta Cana without a rental car can visit this sleepy beach on a full-day catamaran cruise, which includes a chance to swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters of one of the nation's hidden cenotes.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This beach is a must-visit for sun seekers and families. 
  • Remember to bring your ID; you might need it when entering Cap Cana Resort.
  • Cabanas and loungers are available for rent along the beach.
  • Public restrooms are not available on the beach.

How to Get There
Juanillo Beach is located in Cap Cana, about 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport by road. The easiest way to reach the beach is by taxi or on a catamaran ride from Punta Cana.

When to Get There
There isn't really a bad time to visit Juanillo Beach, though it can get lively when special events are taking place, usually on the weekends. The weather is warm and beach-worthy year-round, though hurricanes are somewhat of a threat in the Caribbean between June and November.

Things to Do at Juanillo Beach
Warm, shallow, blue waters create a natural swimming pool at this beautiful beach, ideal for swimming and sunbathing. It's also a destination for windsurfing when the weather allows. If you plan to windsurf, snorkel, or partake in any other water sport, be sure to join a guided excursion or bring your own equipment, as rentals are not available on the beach.
