Welcome to Punta Cana.
(Punta Cana, Bávaro, Uvero Alto, Macao, Cap Cana)
Blessed with one of the longest white sand coasts in the Caribbean region – a whopping 48 kilometers (30 miles) punctuated by sky-high coconut trees – Punta Cana is the land of tranquility and relaxation by the sea. Here, where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean, from the northern tip in Uvero Alto to the southern tip in Cap Cana, all-inclusive resorts and boutique hideaways offer all the whims and comforts of modern beachfront living. Families enjoy miniature entertainment centers and water parks for kids, while couples-only enclaves offer dreamy wedding venues with secluded beachfront accommodations for an ultra-romantic stay. But it’s not all about fun in the sun, soft sand that brushes against your toes, and dazzling clear waters where you can swim, fish, or dive for underwater life and shipwrecks. Punta Cana is also a golfer’s destination, with 10 golf courses spanning the strip, an oceanfront haven of luxury marinas and fine restaurants, and a wellness corner that’s home to the country’s best spas, including the only Six Senses in the Caribbean.
Wherever you settle on this brilliant white Punta Cana coastline – there are 11 Blue Flag-certified beaches in its inventory – go beach hopping to enjoy its full splendor. From the quaint surf hubs of Macao and Bávaro’s hipster beaches Corales and Cortecito-lined with stores, water sports and beach bars-to the secluded Juanillo, to name a few..
Spend a day away from the sand and you’ll have countless inland adventures. Cool off in the azure freshwater cenotes and lagoons in the forests of Ojos Indígenas and Scape Park, where the tweens of the family can also go ziplining and caving. Explore the lush Dominican countryside on an off-road safari, passing roadside meat stores and sugar cane plantations. Along the way, visit the country’s most important pilgrimage site, the Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, and feel the deep spiritual roots of the DR.
If there are plenty of activities during the day, the nights are no less lively. The young at heart can dance the night away until their feet tire in the DR’s modern nightclubs, while stylish evenings under the stars await in marinas and coastal lounges with cocktails, appetizers, and hand-rolled cigars.
Punta Cana is the epitome of water, sun and sand escape.
