Punta Cana, DR - The Beach

Nick & I have travelled to several different beach locations for vacation...St. Lucia, Mexico, Florida, Hawaii...and I honestly don't know if any of them were as beautiful as Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana.  The water was a gorgeous blue/green/turquoise color with waves crashing of shore along a natural reef.  The ocean breeze coming off the Atlantic was enough that we never once felt hot. It was perfect. 
 




Since our goal this trip was relaxation, we spent our entire trip (minus we morning excursion) lounging on the beach, walking on the beach, and just enjoying some time to ourselves.  It was a more laidback trip than we normally take...but with us being there for a shorter time than we're used to, it was nice to not have any plans. 





The beach was wide and long, and while there were definitely spots that were crowded, we never felt that way on our beach.  Plus it's always a fun time to people watch when you're vacationing on the beach. 




Our first day there it rained a few times, but the sun would pop out in between...and otherwise it was absolutely gorgeous weather.  85+ degrees with a perfect ocean breeze! 


 

 

Not gonna lie, I didn't know if I'd ever feel comfortable being in a bikini again after having Elyse...but thanks to Zumba and watching my diet, I was feeling as confident as ever! 
 





 
Bavaro Beach, I'll definitely be back...you provided us with the perfect location for our romantic getaway!

Next up...our activities & the food!
