One of the Dominican Republic's best kept secrets is Juanillo Beach. Though it is public, the entrance to the beach is guarded by Cap Cana, which prevents it from being easily accessible. Still, if you let security guards know where you're going, you shouldn't have any trouble getting in.
Situated in the vicinity of Punta Cana, 0.4 miles north of Juanillo, Juanillo Beach is on the East edge of Hispaniola. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. The Dominican Republic's beaches are hardly known for being secluded, but you'll find Juanillo Beach to be a little calmer than most, making it a good choice for travelers who don't want to wander too far away, but would rather avoid the most hectic parts of town.
Juanillo Beach is accessible through Cap Cana.
Juanillo Beach features sparkling topaz waters that are clear and calm. They wash ashore clean, powder soft sands that are lined with well trimmed palm trees.
Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.
Juanillo Beach brings guests an angelic and relaxing getaway, especially since the surrounding region is far from urbanized.
