When WestJet flies to this destination:
If you’re a sand and surf lover, we know you’ll find paradise in Punta Cana. Wiggle your toes in soft, white sand and look out at an endless expanse of beach stretching for 60 km in La Altagracia province on the east coast of the Dominican Republic.
The area known as Punta Cana is actually a string of nine pristine beach areas running from Playa Uvero Alto – about an hour’s drive north of the Punta Cana airport – to Playa Juanillo in Cap Cana, half an hour to the south. Come marvel at the blue waters on this stretch of beaches where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean.
In Punta Cana, you can chill out on the beach or take part in a myriad of aquatic activities. Sport fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, windsurfing and sailing are just some of the many options. Take a “flying boat” ride over the waves (it’s like a cross between hang gliding and hover crafting), party on a double-decker boat or dine by the sea. You’ll quickly discover why this is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean.
Most of the more than 80 hotels boast beachfront locations and you’re sure to find a property to suit your individual tastes. Famous all-inclusive resorts include Excellence, Dreams, Bahia Principe, Iberostar, Paradisus and Hard Rock. Many offer day and night passes, allowing you to sample everything the property has to offer, including food and drinks.
If you like a challenge on the links, check out the dozen pro-level golf courses here. Punta Cana is considered the largest single destination for golf in the Caribbean and the odds are in your favour when it comes to the weather. It hardly ever rains here and when it does, it’s likely just after dusk. Tee up on a Jack Nicklaus course in Cap Cana or a Tom Fazio design in Los Corales and be awed by the beauty of the ocean vistas during your round.
Beyond beaches and golf, you’ll discover gleaming new shopping centres, dozens of independent restaurants, hopping nightlife, pampering spas and every kind of excursion you could imagine.
