The unknown isolated beaches of Punta Cana

Sometimes it’s hard to believe what kind of hidden gems you can find just a few miles away from big tourism hotspots. One of these examples is the pristine, untouched and marvellous beaches north of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

Punta Cana is famous for its dozens of all-inclusive resorts with more than 40,000 (!) hotel rooms, all of them located along the beautiful beaches of Punta Cana, Bavaro & Co. However, this comes with a price – it is hard to find pristine and untouched beaches right at the resorts, as a lot of visitors love to have their beach walks.

Considering these numbers with a capacity of around 100,000 guests daily, I was even more surprised that you still can find unspoiled, secluded and inhabited beaches not far away from Punta Cana, where you can walk for miles without meeting any single person. Simply take a rental car or a taxi and venture out to explore these off-the-beaten-track beaches, just between 20 and 40 miles northwest of the main resort area of Punta Cana. The most gorgeous ones are Playa La Vacama, Playa Limón and Playa Esmeralda. You will meet absolutely nobody here! If you have ever dreamt of having an entire beach on your own and finding perfect photo opportunities for wild beach settings, these are your places to go. They are so pristine that I have even already camped on all of those three beaches. It is an amazing experience waking up in the morning and seeing the ocean from your tent.

Even if camping is not yours, you can visit these beaches on a day-trip from Punta Cana. Just rent a car or get yourself a taxi and explore these hidden gems less than an hour away from the famous holiday destination of Punta Cana.
