Three Jesus loving friends with more than 30 years of experience, got together to share their Stoke and all the benefits that Surfing gave them through their life; teaching kids from 4 to 76 years old to Surf, to respect the ocean and nature in general. We are in one of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches of the Dominican Republic, on the Punta Cana area: Macao Beach, a localism free beach where everybody is welcome, with six different breaks and one of the safest beaches to learn how to surf, and yet exciting enough for experienced surfers. Literally making dreams come true, specially for those that dreamed all their life about riding waves, for those that want to make Surfing their main sports activity, and also for those that just want to get Surfing out of their "bucket list". Surf Shack with showers and lockers.

How long would the drive from Dreams Palm Beach take? What is the cost and how many hours would it be?

Response from Salvador H | Reviewed this property |
I don't know where Dreams Palm Beach is. I assume that is in the Bavaro area. It will take you no more than 30 minutes drive. You may spend 2 or 3 or 4 hours depending on what your plan is. Mild surfing is available as well... More
