Article repost from BOP Best of Punta Cana
This week’s neighborhood is a bit out of the way, but no less beautiful. In fact, it might be that exact location that makes it a little bit more secluded and exclusive.. We’re talking about Cap Cana! Where nature gives you the most stunning beach in Punta Cana. Walk with us and discover Cap Cana!
FIRST THINGS FIRST
Cap Cana is located in the south of Punta Cana. It’s a gated community that you enter through the main gate. You have to show your passport and tell the guard where you’re going. No worries – we’re here to advise you, so you’ll know all the addresses! You can enter Cap Cana through the office at P1.
THINGS TO DO IN CAP CANA: BREAKFAST ‘N CHILL
Every start of the day, you’re gonna need coffee. It’s just true. Breakers Coffee Shop in Cap Cana is ideal. Next, to delish coffee, they have an abundance of breakfast choices. Like chocolate croissants, but also healthier dishes like their coconut bowl with homemade granola and juicy fruit. For a bit of a luxury start AND the most breathtaking view, you must go to Eden Roc. Here, they feature breakfasts from all around the world – Japanese brekkie, anyone? French toast, fresh pancakes, Spanish tortillas… it’s a mouthwatering begin.
Psst.. you weren’t done with coffee? Go to Cafeina House. Expect cute latte art and fine iced coffees to take with you on your walk.
CAP CANA CARE
Take your iced coffee and walk to Juanillo Beach, one of Punta Cana’s most beautiful beaches. It’s of the picture-perfect kind, with soft, white sand and waving palms. Another stunning beachfront and must-visit is Api Beach,which is a restaurant on the beach with a private beach attached. Because mainly people who live in Cap Cana visit this beach, it’s quite a relaxing one.
As Cap Cana is such a beautiful, natural spot, it makes sense they house the most loved horses. In Los Establos, you can go see and pet these noble beauties. Also, the stables host an organic market every Sunday.
For more nature fun, visit the Hoya Azul to jump into the coldest, but bluest water you’ll find in Punta Cana! Hoya Azul is a cenote, which means you’re swimming in a half-open cave. A must-do experience.
RESTAURANTS IN CAP CANA: CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES
After a day of relaxing and visiting stunning natural sights and sweet horses, you’re gonna want food. Cap Cana has an abundance of choices. Why not visit Sanctuary Town, where there’s a variety of places? Pizza, burgers, Spanish food.. It opens at 6, and on the weekend, they like to rock ‘n roll. During the week, you can also opt for beach place Little John, where you can munch on fresh fish, burgers and other good food. On the weekend, this joint hosts parties and sometimes karaoke. Sing your lil heart out! Then there’s also La Mona Nouvelle Cuisine, where you’ll have a gorgeous view over the ocean and sit right on the water. They serve Italian, Venezuelan and Japanese food and make the most delish cocktails.
We think it’s quite the romantic venue,
