The beach is totally USELESS. The coastline is covered in STINKY seaweeds and the water is brown and still. It looks like sewage water. You can’t even come close to the water due to the horrible smell, and swimming is not advisable. You come to...More

this is a big turnoff, not worth going here. Seaweed are not cleaned up, hotel staff do not care about us, you actually get a rash when it touched you. I don't think a genuine effort is made to clean up the beach.

the seaweed was horrible and it smelled bad. The water was pretty but the seaweed made it not appealing

Bavaro Beach is lovely, the sea had a bit of seaweed it in it during our stay, please don’t let this put you off traveling to Punta Cana. It doesn’t stop you from swimming or playing in the waves. The sea is still fantastic. Mike

tons of seaweed along this beach makes it un-swim-able. There's no effort to actually clean it up unless you are in front of the "timeshare" type areas

It is a fabulous beach depending on what seaweed comes in with the tide, with plentiful chairs & not enough shady areas on the beach. For any shade you would need to move onto the property away from the sand & water. Snorkeling is not...More

Very nice beach. Soft Sand and nice breeze. A bit of a seaweed problem, but hey clean it up quick. Hopefully it will stop soon.

This is a really beautiful beach. A few rocks, but large ones, the water is so clear that they are clearly visable! Great for snorkelling & relaxing.

Beach is great, with white sand, and water is very warm. However, at end of July, seaweed was in large quantities.

Hey, I was just there less than two weeks ago. There is definitely a seaweed issue along this side of the ocean. It’s not horribly bad, but definitely noticeable. You can go out a few feet and bypass it but would have to... More
