Playa Arena Gorda, the name puts emphasis on its sand, and it should. The sand is white, and there is a lot of it on this wide beach with warm water and playful waves. Breathtaking colors welcome visitors every morning at sunrise, giving early risers a reward for an early morning walk. After a hearty Dominican breakfast at one of the amazing beachfront resorts, head to the sand, jump in the water to play on the waves or take an early siesta under the shade of a palm tree. From Arena Gorda Beach you can take a walk to nearby beaches and get lost in the paradisiac coastline of Punta Cana.
