Without a doubt, one of the best beaches in Punta Cana is Playa Juanillo. 

Located in the Cap Cana area, its remoteness has made Playa Juanillo one of the preferred places for people travelling with friends or family, especially with children. In this area, the water is especially clear and calm, so swimming will be enjoyable for all members of the family. 

How to get to Playa Juanillo 

There are several ways to get here. You can stay at a hotel near the beach, but if you prefer to stay in other places such as Playa Bávaro and take a day trip to visit Playa Juanillo, the best way of getting here is by booking one of the many tours that are offered that usually leave from Playa Bávaro to Cap Cana, where a catamaran then sets sail for Playa Juanillo. 

During the journey, you have the chance to do different activities, such as snorkelling. Don’t miss out on this opportunity, since in this area there is a coral reef full of life and attractive colours that will make this experience truly unforgettable in this privileged environment in the Caribbean Sea. It will undoubtedly be one of the most special memories you’ll have of your holidays. 

The next destination will be Playa Juanillo. Upon arrival, you’ll see in first person how its natural beauty will leave you speechless. Its fine white sand with scattered coconut palm trees, along with the gentle Caribbean Sea with its turquoise waters, make it a true paradise to enjoy as a couple, with family or friends.
