I strolled along the cool white sands of Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic as the sun lit up the azure sky. Puffy clouds floated by and gentle breezes ruffled the fronds of the tall gorgeous palm trees that lined the beach. It was another beautiful day on Bavaro Beach. (I have read that Punta Cana is considered one of the - if not the- most beautiful beaches in the world). I must say that having been to many beaches, I agree that it is stunning.
Punta Cana has seven Blue Flag Beaches.These beaches must meet stringent standards: clean water, safe swimming areas, and ensure that no waste will pollute the beach, and all is subject to inspection.
The long beach (Punta Cana beach is 63 km. long) offers swimming, jogging, kayaking, volleyball, parasailing, fishing trips, snorkeling, parties on party boats, and shopping at the beach huts at the southeast end of the beach. Most of these activities are offered through the hotels ( generally all-inclusive) and they offer even more fun activities on the hotel grounds such as several pools, swim-up bars, restaurants on the beach, palapas to sit under and relax, spas, aerobics on the beach or in the pool, beach massage,and wine-tastings.
In the evenings most hotels have several restaurants, cocktail parties, shopping, a casino, and shows.
Bavaro Beach is a tropical paradise and I highly recommend it.
