Where is Cap Cana?
Well, Cap Cana is located on the South Eastern point of The Dominican Republic, south of Turks and Caicos and West of the British Virgin Islands. The Dominican Republic was one of the places that Columbus landed during his first voyage. It is a country that has the oldest castle and cathedral in the Americas and its old Colonial Zone in its capital city, Santo Domingo, offers some incredible buildings to explore for those who are keen on a bit of history.
The stretch of coastline that includes the spectacular Cap Cana Resort is known as the Coconut Coast. No surprise when you see the leafy coconut trees waving in a warm breeze above the softest and whitest sand imaginable. It is a postcard-perfect destination.
With lots of direct flight services from Europe, the USA and Canada, it’s not a complicated journey to get to this majestic part of the world. At Exceptional Villas we can meet you at the Airport and whisk you direct to your luxury accommodations within the enclave that is Cap Cana. Vacationing has never been so easy.
Golf legend, the Golden Bear, otherwise known as Jack Nicklaus, has designed the award-winning Punta Espada Golf Course that curves dramatically around the Caribbean coastline of Cap Cana. As one of the very best things to do in Cap Cana, taking in a round of golf or even just getting some lessons to launch your future golfing career, is certainly a must.
This par-72 Course has been ranked #1 in the Caribbean and Mexico for the 8 consecutive years. With a Course and climate that supports golf all year round, Punta Espada is the place for all you golf enthusiasts.

The Water …. and all that entails
Not many resorts boast their own private marina but Cap Cana is one! The modern marina, skirted by shops and restaurants is a great place to wander, stop for lunch or get out onto the water. With amazing wrecks off shore there is world-class diving to be enjoyed.
For the more ambitious, there is some of the best deep sea fishing just 3 miles off shore. Day trips, with lunch, can be organised for the fisherman/fisherwoman in your group who want to pit their wits against the mighty fish of the Caribbean.
For the wannabe pirate, why not book your own private yacht and explore the coastline of Punta Cana. See the Coconut Coast from the comfort of your own boat while you enjoy a picnic at sea. At Exceptional Villas we can pre-book all of your sea-faring excursions whether it’s fishing, diving or yacht rental, we know the best teams to take you out and ensure you have a memorable and fun day on the waves.
Stretching between Cap Cana Marina and Sanctuary Cap Cana Golf & Spa Resort is the beautiful Juanillo Beach. This is the epicentre of water-sport activity in Cap Cana.
If you want to do some snorkelling, kayaking or paddle-boarding, this is the place to go. If you simply want to relax, it’s a great place to sunbathe and take a dip or two into the warm and calm waters of the Caribbean.
The beach often hosts volleyball tournaments and Cross-fit events, so depending on the timetable, it will be a busy lively destination or a very laid with a bohemian vibe. The famed Little John restaurant provides delicious lunch and snack food throughout the day and transforms into a romantic yet casual dining destination after sunset.
