Bavaro Beach/Playa Bavaro
This is a classical Caribbean beach.
It's the "Main Beach" in Punta Cana. All over the beach are restaurants and bars.
All Inclusive Tourist Beach
Most people who visit Punta Cana will stay in an all inclusive beach front hotel at Bavaro Beach.
So there will automatically be a lot of tourists here.
Be aware that much of the beach is reserved for the hotels on the coastline.
There are many attractions you can book, as you would expect of one of the places most people go, when speaking about Dominican Republic.
Avoid The Touristic Areas
See my Map to know where the hotels reserve the beach for their guests. I did not have the chance walking the whole beach, but the places in the Map are the ones we experienced being reserved.
You most likely can't stay there because they have hotel personal guarding the spots. And if you can stay there you have to pay.
I stayed at Los Corales Beach Bavaro.
This is a part of the beach which is not all touristic, but still as beautiful as the rest.
