Macau Beach is one of the most beautiful and comfortable for swimming in the entire Dominican Republic. It is located in the vicinity of Punta Cana, just 7 minutes’ drive from another famous beach, Bavaro. However, the two coastal zones are very different from each other. The thing is that Macau is considered almost the last wild beach in the whole republic. It does not belong to any of the hotels. The coast itself and the surrounding area are very picturesque. This is one of those places that proves that nature is the most talented builder and artist. But words will not convey all the beauty – you just need to come here and see with your own eyes. There is no coral reef that obstructs the waves, so the beach is an attraction for surfers.
