Paradise lost? Naaa..it's right here in Playa Blanca, Punta Cana (not to be mistaken with Bávaro where the beaches don't even come close). Walk out as far as you like here, the water will still only brush your knees. Dominican Republics's pristine beaches are unrivaled in sheer beauty and what makes them even better is the absolutely dee-licious food served straight to your humble little abode on the sand. I'm really craving one of those fresh piña coladas in a pineapple. Yum!
