On the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is a quintessential Caribbean paradise, all white-sand beaches and swaying coconut palms.

When it comes to all-inclusive breaks in the Dominican Republic, or the DR as it’s often called, no other destination can match the sun-drenched luxury of holidays in Punta Cana. Resorts here back some of the world’s best beaches, which stretch continuously for some 20 miles along the coast, punctuated by little more than the occasional lagoon or beachfront café. Downtown buzzes with bars after dark, while daytime thrills include snorkelling, sailing, kayaking and zip-lining.

Nature in Punta Cana

While extensive development means that you can choose between hundreds of hotels in Punta Cana, the area’s natural beauty hasn’t been lost. Both pristine beaches and inland habitats are meticulously protected. The Ojos Indígenas Ecological Park and Reserve is Punta Cana’s landmark project, encompassing some 500 acres that are home to around 100 bird species and 500 different plants.

Best beaches in Punta Cana

Holidays in Punta Cana are all about putting in some serious beach time, whether you want to soak up the sun on a lounger or splash about in the waves.

  • Palm-backed Bávaro Beach is one of the longest – and most beautiful – anywhere in the Dominican Republic. Flop out on the sand or try parasailing above the shallows.
  • Locals and surfers flock to Macao Beach, Punta Cana’s main public strand. The gentle swell is concentrated to one side of the bay, so there are still plenty of spots to swim.
  • Playa Juanillo, south of Cap Cana, has a reputation for being Punta Cana’s most bohemian beach. There’s a chilled out bar set beneath the lofty palms, although it can get lively during events at the weekend.
  • With lifeguards keeping an eye out for kids and a slew of watersports on offer through the surrounding all-inclusive resorts, Arena Gorda Beach is a great choice for families.
  • Bars and cafés back laidback Cortecito Beach and are as much part of its appeal as the windsurfing and swimming.
Quiet beaches in Punta Cana

Quiet beaches in Punta Cana

Beyond the private beaches at all-inclusive Punta Cana hotels there are isolated coves, untouched islands and wave-lashed surf beaches to discover.

  • It’s a two-hour catamaran cruise from Punta Cana to Isla Saona, a true island paradise where turtles nest in season and the waters are protected as part of Parque Nacional Del Este.
  • Uvero Alto’s golden sands make a change from the power-white beaches along much of the coastline. Thanks to wilder waves and a stronger undertow, it rarely feels crowded.
  • Playa Los Corales abuts a luxurious enclave of apartments and restaurants. The refined, calm atmosphere extends to the beach.
  • Exclusive Playa Caletón is the crowning glory of Cap Cana. It’s a private beach, but you can pay to gain access for the day.
  • Punta Cana’s most secluded beaches are true local secrets. Explore the bays around Playa Cabeza de Toro and you might stumble upon your own private patch of sand.
