Punta Cana Beaches

The main draw of Punta Cana are the beaches that border the meeting point between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The multi-shaded blue waters of the ocean complemented by white sands create lasting impressions.

While resorts line the coastal strip, there is beach access from outside roads and restaurants, such as Bávaro (Jellyfish, Los Corales, Huracán Café, El Pulpo Cojo), El Cortecito (Captain Cook and Soles) and Macao, further to the north.With some exceptions, there are no restrictions for tourists walking along one hotel beach to another, although there are many patches of undeveloped land tracts between them. These beaches can be easily reached by taxi or commuter “guagua.”

Featured Hotel Deal

Cabeza de Toro

White sands, adjacent to the Cabeza de Toro Yacht Club, a departure point for fishing trips and fishing tournaments site. Cabeza de Toro beaches in front of the Natura Park, Dreams Palm Beach and Be Live Grand Punta Cana are recipients of the prestigious European Blue Flag beach quality certification.


The most developed section of the east coast resort strip, the Bávaro area is dotted with hotels, restaurants and gift shops right on the beach. Most of this stretch of beach is walkable. Here you can book beach activities, ranging from parasailing to speed-boat riding. This area includes Los Corales and can be accessed through the parking area.

El Cortecito

An area that made Bávaro famous, where boat taxis arrive to bring tourists to the restaurants on the beach. This is a very commercial and residential developed area of Bávaro beach.

Uvero Alto

Sparsely developed area with golden sands beach and high waves in some sections.


The adventurous 4-wheel all-terrain vehicles zoom around this beach, but it is also large enough for enjoyment and relaxation.
