juanillo beach

Is all of this beach part of the resort or is it public and I can lay down on my towel there?

ok but on this page is written :" But the best part is the lack of people walking around. Surely this is because it is surrounded by the luxury hotels and to be able to take a bath in the water, you have to stay in one of these hotels or eat in one of the restaurants around the area."

Juanillo Beach is located within the gated property of Cap Cana. It is open to the public. If you are driving yourself, you will be required to leave ID at the main gate to the property. Contrary to what was mentioned on the linked webpage, the beach is not surrounded by resorts. As mentioned, currently there are 2 resorts...Sanctuary and Secrets Cap Cana acting as bookends to the beach. Little John's serves a decent meal and good drinks.


The only time the beach gets busy seems to be on weekends...even then, it is not overly busy.

As it has been said, Secrets Cap Cana and Sanctuary are both located on the beach of Juanillo. In between, there is a public part and there are also some beach clubs where you can have a drink or eat something. Juanillo is a very beautiful beach.
