Best Beach

We are going to Excellence in January and can't wait. We like to take long walks on the beach (cue the romantic music). I was wondering which resorts are known for having beautiful beaches (with not too much aggressive selling). Also, is there a day trip that you would recommend where there is a fabulous beach? Love me that turquoise water... Signed Hopeless Romantic

If you're staying at Excellence, you can certainly take long walks on that beautiful beach! We stayed at Zoetry last year ( just "beside" Excellence) and saw people walking up from Excellence - turn right when facing the ocean. There are NO beach vendors along that beach you while you're walking. But there are some set up near Excellence I hear if you'd like to shop...

Haven't been, but Macao Beach is highly recommended for a visit - there are organized excursions that go there like PC Mike's Munchies in Macao (Punta Cana Mike's Dominican Adventures) or a dune buggy one that goes there too.

There's the original Bavaro Beach where many resorts sit - we're thinking of a day trip up that way to the El Cortecito area, for lunch at a popular beach restaurant (Jellyfish).

Enjoy your trip - we're returning to Zoetry in July and can't wait either :D

Yes, miles of beautiful beach in Uvero Alto, in both directions from Excellence, with Zoetry and Sivory to the left, and Sirenis, Breathless, and Dreams to the right. There's also a store called Tropical Treasure near Breathless.

I've never been to Macao Beach. I have been to Bavaro Beach many times. It's a beautiful beach. Lunch at the Jellyfish restaurant is a good idea. It's in the middle of Bavaro Beach, between Melia and IFA Villas.
