Playa Corales is one of the two mentioned public access points in this area (and part of Bavaro Beach). While all beaches in the Dominican Republic are public, it sometimes can be a bit tricky to reach them, especially in Punta Cana, where most of the beachfront row is blocked by well-guarded and fenced all-inclusive resorts.

It features a couple of public beach bars as well which makes it a lively and active place to be, including chill-out music and sun loungers. you can rent a chair & Umbrella for 500 pesos and bring your own goods. You can also grab ready-to-eat snacks, cold beers, or delicious to-go meals from supermarkets and restaurants approx. 5 minutes walking away in case you’d like to have your beach feast menu.

Zoho Beach Club is at Corales and you must go there for dinner, It’s a different vibe.

I have stayed at Secret Paradise which is just 100 meters away from the beach and I have seen it first hand, if you are not aware, you will feel you are trespassing into some society/resort.

Entrance: Google search for Sol Punta Cana Real Estate Point2 MLS/ Villa Blanca Beach Club- that’s your entrance. I have attached Pic of the entrance here for your convenience.

Parking: I don’t think it’s there as it's a gated community. but you can ask the guard.
Parking Fee: as per guard wish ;) try 50 or 100 D.Pesos.

We had a terrible experience with Los Corales tours with "Happy Joe" as he called himself. We booked a tour to Saona Island. We were promised breakfast, lunch and open bar with unlimited beer. We had to transfer buses and alot of wasted time waiting for another bus. Happy Joe lied about breakfast since we did not get one and where we stopped it had no breakfast to even buy. There was no unlimited beer with only rum offered in small cups with no ice. We asked if there was shade on the catamaran. No seats and we had to sit on the side with the hot sun! They mentioned lobster and it ended up with very dry chicken and porkchops and to top it off can spaghetti. So many other tours so we had no seats on the beach and disgusting dirty bathrooms. We were overcharged by triple the real price and asked for a discount. Happy Joe made all sorts of excuses and ended giving us alittle of a discount but aggressively demanded a big tip and asked how much we were giving. It was the worst excursion we have been on with all the lies!!

It was low season when we went but we had a great time unwinding. I gotta say if you looking for action packed, it doesnt appear to be the place...but I liked it. Several restaurants and bars to check out and great beach. If you need hair Braiding or massage contact Tania...8294636246...she is on the beach....great lady and mother...amazing massage and braiding.

Lots of plastic on the beach and no easy recovery
BE CAREFUL of touts, especially those at the “Shopping Center” near the Stanza Mare and the quay. The shops sell totally overpriced souvenirs of little value. Sellers will never tell you the prices before you get to the checkout. If this happens to you: get out. We paid $85 for 2 children's t-shirts, a tank top and 3 poor quality children's bracelets and necklaces. It's very difficult to negotiate after wasting 30 minutes choosing items. Plus, they love money a lot so they don't have to declare this income. They will be very hesitant to accept the credit card. A word of advice: arrive with a minimum of money. You can negotiate a little by showing that this is all you have.

Beautiful beach.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of seaweed in places.
Various beach vendors keep coming back.
Don't buy excursions on the beach. For German speakers, I can highly recommend:
