Easily one of the Dominican Republic’s top-five most stunning beaches, the mega-wide, brilliant blonde, palm-tree studded Playa Macao is a surfer’s favorite. Known for its swells and trade winds, the beach is located on the northern end of the Punta Cana region. On site surfing classes of all levels are available year-round, particularly on weekends. Macao’s local restaurants are also known for serving some of the best Dominican-style fishplates on this side of Punta Cana.

Boca de Yuma

Boca de Yuma offers a daytime escape to a scenic Dominican fishing village. Boasting panoramic cliff top views, it has often been compared to an Italian seaside town, where restaurants, bars, and shacks line up above the sea. The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León once had a home in the area.
