The Basics

A hidden gem in Punta Cana, Juanillo Beach is far less frequented that more popular stretches of shore in the area, meaning it's a nice spot to avoid the crowds. Travelers based in Punta Cana without a rental car can visit this sleepy beach on a full-day catamaran cruise, which includes a chance to swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters of one of the nation's hidden cenotes.
