Top Water Sports in Punta Cana

Punta Cana is a perfect place for those who love water sports with its idyllic location on the water.

The launch of Noval Properties’ new Ocean Bay resort set on the famous Bavaro Beach, has inspired us to choose our top five water sports to enjoy in the Dominican Republic east coast tourism resort.

With around 50 miles of coastline and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, there is a huge choice of water sports to enjoy in Punta Cana. Here are some of our favorites:

Scuba Diving

With underwater caverns, spectacular coral gardens, and an incredible number of diving sites to choose from, scuba diving is a high priority for water sports lovers. Not to mention, alongside experiencing the beautiful seascapes, you can see some of the Caribbean’s breathtaking sea life including stingrays, nurse sharks, parrotfish, and stingrays. Besides with experts on hand to help with a vast knowledge of the surrounding area, there is something for everyone.


Snorkeling is another way to enjoy more of Punta Cana’s beautiful water and sea creatures. Not to mention, for those who may find diving more difficult, snorkeling is a great alternative to appreciate the beautiful surroundings. Explore every cavern, cove and watch your stress drift away enjoying a fun activity for all the family.


For those looking to take on the waves, Punta Cana offers the chance to surf on its beautiful beaches. Not to mention, you can take lessons on the shore and in the water with step-by-step instructions to help you no matter what your skill level. Additionally, with both small group and private teaching, you will soon be riding some of Punta Cana’s finest waves. 



Try one of the world’s fastest-growing water sports. Kitesurfing is an exciting and adventurous opportunity to try something new, combining elements of surfing, snowboarding, and other extreme sports. Additionally, this water sport is a fantastic fit for those seeking a challenge. Not to mention, gliding over the water being one with nature is an experience not to be missed. 


The Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean offer endless possibilities for boat lovers in Punta Cana. Not to mention, whether in a yacht, catamaran, or even a jet-ski, you can travel to your heart’s content to explore the Dominican’s coastline.
