This year, Punta Cana is trending – among other things – for its spectacular white-sand beaches. With around 90 kilometers of powdery white sand coastline, the tropical hotspot is one of the best places to experience everything that makes the Dominican Republic so popular.

Earlier this year, Bávaro Beach, undoubtedly the most popular attraction for sun-seeking travelers, was named one of the best beaches in the Caribbean by Travel + Leisure.

According to the leading travel and lifestyle magazine, the idyllic beach, measuring dozens of kilometers in length, is lined with palm trees, giving it an iconic tropical vibe that is hard to beat. Its soft sands provide the perfect backdrop for an amazing vacation, complete with countless hours spent sunbathing under the sun.

Travelers can also find dozens of top-rated all-inclusive resorts along Bávaro beach; from family-friendly choices to adults-only retreats, the beach is a great destination for all types of travelers.

Some of the best properties in the area currently include Iberostar Grand Bávaro. The beautifully designed 5-star resort boasts 273 rooms, swim-up bars, and an array of restaurants.
