With beaches, cocktails and heart-thumping cave dives, Cap Cana holidays let you release your wild side in the Dominican Republic.

Caribbean escape

Hello, paradise. Cap Cana's a resort community in Punta Cana on the Dominican Republic’s east coast, mixing in mod cons and service with the usual beachy backdrop. It's the perfect place to sip some Dominican rum on a private white-sand beach. When you're ready to explore, the rest of Punta Cana's seaside resorts are at your sand-covered feet. Just a heads up – the beaches here are sometimes affected by sargassum, a type of seaweed. It’s influenced by things like weather patterns and the currents in the sea. If your hotel’s affected, the staff will do everything they can to clear it.

Tee off in style

The Punta Estada Golf Club's a Jack Nicklaus Signature course ranked in the top 100 worldwide. About a 15-minute drive from the marina, it's definitely one for the bucket list. With perfectly manicured greens against the blue ocean and a stylish clubhouse, you'll be looking for excuses to keep practising your putts.

High-energy adventures

Cap Cana's not all about cocktails and canapes. Jump on an excursion to Scape Park or El Farallon Cliff for the chance to go caving, zip-lining or waterfall jumping. If you want less thrill and more chill, remote Saona Island's got turquoise waters that lap at white-sand beaches.

Punta Cana's shores

Crystal-clear water, Caribbean treats and cocktails served in coconuts – Api Beach is a dream. For more of a private hotel vibe, walk the white sands and palm tree-lined shores of Playa Juanillo. Wherever you go, you'll have turquoise water to back up your selfies.
