The beach that the Riu Palace Bavaro is located along is known as Arena Gorda, which translates to Fat Sand. The name reflects the width of the beach – it is one of the widest in the area. The sand at the Riu Palace beach is soft and white and slopes gently down to the water. Shallow areas provide ideal places for kids to splash around, especially when the surf is calm. The water can get rough from time to time, as is the case at virtually any ocean beach. In the more shallow areas, the color of the water is a splendid turquoise. Guests of the Riu Punta Cana resorts mostly have this part of the coast to themselves, as public access tends to be difficult. Add in all the other great Punta Cana beaches that are within easy reach of the resort, and it becomes clear that the Riu Palace Bavaro is a fantastic travel base for rewarding Caribbean beach vacations.
