DescriptionOne of the country's fastest-growing destinations, Punta Cana is known for its quiet beaches and all-inclusive resorts. The silky sand beaches on this eastern tip of the island stretch for some 30 miles (50 km), and water sports offer the chief source of entertainment. A coral reef—the longest in the region—breaks the waves offshore, keeping the surf gentle. Local communities in the Punta Cana area include Arena Gorda, Bávaro , Cabeza de Toro, Cap Cana, El Cortecito, Macao and Uvero Alto.
Punta Cana International Airport, reputedly the world's first privately owned international airport, is located within the 15,000-acre Puntacana Resort and Club. The Punta Cana Ecological Reserve is a natural sanctuary for local flora and fauna.
