    It is Punta Cana’s main beach and is 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. No trip to Punta Cana would be complete without some time spent on its gorgeous beaches. Playa Bávaro.

    It is one of the most popular shorelines in Punta Cana, with its powdery sands, swaying palm trees, blue waters, and a bevy of amenities, including water sports rentals, dining options, and nearby accommodations.

    there is so much confusion about where it starts/ends, and entrance to public beaches as 80% of beach areas are occupied by resorts. The beach stretches for 12 miles between Macao and Cabeza de Toro, but keep in mind that there are just four public access points at Corales, El Cortecito, Jellyfish, and Bibi Jagua.

    Bavaro Beach has several subsections that all have their name. However, they are all connected and you can explore them walking consecutively. El Cortecito and Corales are two of these stretches and are very convenient

    The clear waters off Bavaro Beach make it ideal for snorkeling, and many hotels on the strip include snorkeling equipment during your stay.

    don’t imagine it to be a crowded beach. There is always something going on, people are enjoying their beach walks and locals are sitting in the sand, but as the beach is extremely long and wide, you always have more than enough space, and it NEVER feels crowded.

    This church is amazing. We own a condo in the area and go to Sunday mass. Very uplifting and the parish is so welcoming. Gospel in Spanish and English. A sanctuary to visit with The Lord!

    we visited this beautiful cave from taking a buggie tour and it was well worth it. the picturesque cave is so beautiful. It had long lines with locals and visitors trying to get in the cave pool. I couldn't get to dive in cause my son did not want to dive so I couldn't leave him. but taking pictures and just being there was all worth it for us. Thank me later when you see this beautiful cave. enjoy

    Excellent place, beautiful beach with a nice restaurant where you can rent a tent as well. Only Spanish speeking personnel. The road to the beach is a challenge. It's reached best with an off road vehicle. However we've made it with a small rental car

    A few older slot machines and a few newer ones. Had to pay for a bottled beer but cheap drinks were free(if you dare). They didnt sit there and stare at you anyway. Small casino but larger than at any of the resorts except Hard Rock of course.

    We just want something close that we could walk to from our place. We found this great place that was kind of off the beaten path. They had cold Presidente and different stuff than what we had found in the other gift shops

    We love this place, its our second time here. It’s amazing and all the staff are lovely - especially Nelson Cabral the bar tender on the beach. He really looked after us and made sure we always had whatever drink we wanted. Thank you.

    Incredible and fun for the whole family (we had a group of 7 ages 5 to 70). It was not easy! But there were opportunities for everyone to be involved! The staff was fantastic - super encouraging and hospitable.

    I had an AMAZING massage and experience here. I was staying at one of the local resorts at the time, which -- while they have spa services which include massages, unfortunately none were available on the beach (even though the resort is on the beach!!). And I reeeeeally wanted a beach massage during this vacation. So, after a quick Google Maps search, I found Flavio. Called them and was booked for my desired day and time in no time! Coordinated it with Oskarina, who was so nice, friendly, responsible, and helpful!!

    When I arrived, Oskarina greeted me and was all those great things and more in person as well! She soon introduced me to my masseuse, who was another sweet lady whose name unfortunately escapes me but was a similar name (or at least sounded similar) to Oskarina's. This lady was amazing in her service!! Gave a wonderful, 90-minute relaxing massage. AND it was a beautiful day, on a nice, quiet area of the beach. The massage was so relaxing that I fell asleep in maybe the last half hour or so of it.

    The whole experience was incredible. I ended up (HIGHLY) recommending this place to another lady I met at my resort who'd had a massage at the resort and was raving about it. I'm like "if you liked that, you'll love this spot just 10 minutes away, where you can get a massage on the beach and for the same price!!" Her jaw dropped and she immediately wanted to know where, so I gave her the info! I'll have to come back and update once I find out if she went.

    Oh! Also, this place offers two other ambiance options for your massage: their beautiful garden view or the traditional indoors. Annnd they have an on-site pool, which you can use for free after your service.

    I highly recommend!! Go get you a marvelous beach massage!!!!!
