The Dominican Republic is part of a large island, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and Caribbean Sea to the south.
Bávaro is located where the ocean meets the sea.
Originally, the area developed as a place for locals working at resorts in Punta Cana to the south.
Since then, it's become a place for both vacationers and those looking to move full-time.
The main beach is wide and lined with palm trees. The turquoise waters are calm thanks to a long coral reef.
Inland, you'll find four local golf courses, with several more within a short drive towards the town of Punta Cana.
