    Note that this property received a significant renovation and relaunch in 2015. Read all about it in our review of Club Med Punta Cana.

    Club Med Punta Cana has a beautiful stretch of beach, long enough for a good walk.

    Two nice sights: white sand beach, and plenty of lounge-chairs.

    Past the snack bar, you'll find the scuba shack, sailboats, windsurfers, kayaks, a place to get snorkel gear, and beyond all that a quiet adults-only beach.

    In calm weather, the aqua-fitness class takes place in the sea.

    The beach at Club Med Punta Cana is good for kids: shallow gradual shore, and nice sand for sand-castles.

    Snorkel gear is available, but you wont see many fish along the shore. If you're lucky, though, you may see an amazing sight: an eagle ray.

    Same huge pool, totally different area, and a view of the sea beyond. This is one very big swimming pool the size of a football field.

    Yet another area of the giant pool at Club Med Punta Cana: here's the zone where the families with little kids hang out. Park your stroller under the palapa and settle in.

    There is also a tot's pool by the Petit Club; guests are welcome to use this pool, as long as the Petit Club isn't splashing in it. (See Kids Clubs.)

    Here's the reverse long view, as the sky turns to dusk.

    By the way, you can swim in the pool after dark (which is not always the case, at all inclusive resorts): no lifeguards, though.
