Bavaro Beach is my favourite beach. The last time we were there in 2003, it was a lovely wide, white sand beach. Paradise. This year, we finally made it back. Although there are spots of wide beach, there are also spots where the hurricanes have hit hard, washing away the beach. Some resorts have geo tubes in front of them. While a great ecological solution, it does take away from the normal "paradise" vista. The pelicans love them!
