Bávaro Beach

Dominican Republic




Beauty Uninterrupted

If you find yourself at Bávaro Beach in Punta Cana, you’ll be very lucky indeed. Many beaches in the Caribbean boast white sand and crystalline waters, but very few can compete with Punta Cana’s sheer abundance of coastline.

And as one of several beaches comprising the country’s most popular tourist destination, Bávaro Beach doesn’t fail to provide plenty of beach amenities and activities.

Bávaro and its neighboring beaches offer all-inclusive resorts, fun excursions and activities galore, and of course, a splendid slice of beachfront.

Beach Activities

Start your vacation with a long morning walk along the sandy shore, and stop to browse goods at rustic souvenir shacks along the way. Need to rest? Take some shade under a coconut palm tree, and snag some fresh fruit from a local vendor.

When the day starts to kick into full gear, indulge in heart-pounding activities like snorkeling, swimming, diving, surfing, windsurfing or kayaking.

An excursion on a glass-bottomed boat can give you firsthand views of the aquatic life, or you can join other high-energy vacationers on a catamaran ride.

At Night

Later on, nightclubs and bars draw crowds for socializing, drinking and dancing. Expect to hear bachata, merengue and dembow along with your pop hits.

Looking to avoid wild partygoers? Opt for a low-key beachfront bar and sip a tropical drink, preferably one with some of the island’s famous Brugal rum. Salud!
