Full moon rising over the pool in the Ambar section (adults only) at the Gran Bahia Principe resort. It is situated on the powder soft sandy beach in Punta Cana. A lovely hotel and a great destination with the friendliest people I've met in all my travels. Playa del Cortecito ,Punta Cana

#EndlessSummer Sunrise at Bavaro Beach For a fine art print visit www.mattandersonphotography.com
Beautiful Bavaro beach on the island of the Dominican Republic. A long exposure at sunrise. My experience on this coast was so peaceful with the waves slowly crashing, sun casually rising, and the new day beginning. I was accompanied only by this amazing palm tree. Punta Cana is part of the newly created Punta Cana-Bávaro-Veron-Macao municipal district in La Altagracia and has an estimated population of 100,000. The weather is fairly consistent all year, with an average temperature of 30 °C. ----Golfing fan? Punta Cana has 12 professional golf courses that were built in 1991, from designers such as Jack Nicklaus, P.B. Dye, Tom Fazio, Nick Faldo and Nick Price. Punta Espada, along with Teeth of the Dog in Casa de Campo figure among the very first 50 best golf courses in the world.
