If you want to relish the finest public beach in Punta Cana, set your GPS headed north to Playa Macao. There are no resorts here … yet. Very few amenities except for a couple laidback restaurants, a surfing school plus vendors selling their crafts. The rest of this seashore is undeveloped. Nothing but flawless sand under a canopy of palm trees. UNESCO considers Macao Beach to be among the best in the Caribbean. No wonder it is popular among tourists and Dominicans.
