If you think that our 2017 Noble Beach Prize Winner for The Bombest Bar at the Catalonia Punta Cana is just a little grass hut, think again: this unassuming beachy spot is beyond happening and is where you want to be. The vibe at the Maloo Bar is super chill, the view is killer, and their one-of-a-kind signature drinks, fresh fruit juices and milkshakes, are utterly luscious.
There are nine wonderful drinks to choose from, but the most popular are the Ma Loo, which is made of bananas, pineapple and orange juice; the Guey, a mix of papaya, melon orange juice and honey; and the Cibao, which is made of bananas, melon, milk and sugar. While you’re trying all these yummy libations, you can work on your tan while listening to the purr of the ocean, stroll on the beach, or just hang out in the dreamy turquoise ocean.
The pearly white sand that hugs the bar is tremendous. If you want to get a view of the blue, just pad on over to the palapas and plop down. The beach has wait service, so you can kick back all day.
Better still, there’s a sand bar that is shallow and you can walk out pretty far. It’s one of the coolest places we’ve been in a long time.
