Leading newspaper USA Today has included Bavaro Beach, in the Dominican Republic’s easternmost region, on the exclusive list of the top ten beaches in the Caribbean.
The beach, lined by some of the Caribbean’s top hotels and protected by an extensive barrier reef, came in seventh on the list.
A panel of experts, including editors, picked the pristine beach from a list of 20 nominees.
Once nominated, the readers voted for their favorite beach. Among the experts, chosen because of their knowledge of Caribbean beaches: Liliana Erasmus (10 Best); Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon (JetSetSarah.com); Melanie Reffes and Chelle Walton (10 Best).
The website indicates that the beach is the perfect destination for excellent sunbathing or for practicing all sorts of water sports due to a nearby reef that protects the beautiful beach.
