We took a catamaran out today from the beach at the Catalonia Bavaro. I am wondering if someone can tell us if that’s a natural reef or sand bar out where the bay appears to meet the open ocean, or if it’s man-made. My husband thinks man-made, because it appears to wrap completely around that eastern end of Bavaro, with no break in it. I am not sure, but I’d love it if someone could provide some info on it. It sure does provide a nice, protected bay for swimming and sailing!
We are also curious as to why this end of PC is so much less well-developed than the more western end. From what I’ve been told, Club Med and the Catalonia are two of the oldest resorts in the area, so why are all the new ones so much further west? We think the bay here is nicer than what we found at the EdenH, and it’s a WHOLE lot less crowded with boats, parasailers, and helicopters.
