This beach is ideal for sports such as windsurfing or kitesurfing, plus there are coral reefs nearby for snorkeling.
However, this beach is private and used mainly by guests of nearby hotels, but it is possible to have access by informing that you are going to the beach.
2. Swim with Dolphins in the Caribbean

5. Visit the Samaná Peninsula
It is located 300 km north of Punta Cana and you can reach it by road, boat and even plane.
It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to visit and is ideal if you like to spend time in contact with nature. Discover its jungle, lagoons, islets, flora, fauna and of course its beaches.
The excursion that caught my attention in Samaná was the lemon waterfalls. It should be noted that the peninsula has several populations and is not as small as I imagined. From the town that bears the same name “El Limón,” you can go to the waterfalls.
You go out on horseback or mule descending a path in the jungle and climb the waterfall on foot through a rocky and sloping area, but it is worth it.
Of course, there are many beaches and you can highlight “Playa Bonita”, it is a beach with a lot of golden sand and many palm trees, it looks like an almost desert beach, unlike others with mangroves and rocks.
Now you know some activities in Punta Cana that will catch you on your next vacation adventure.
