Saona Island tour: discovering a paradise on Earth

Located in the Caribbean Sea, Saona Island, with its turquoise waters and beautiful white sand beaches lined with palm trees, is undoubtedly the excursion that you cannot miss during your stay in the Dominican Republic.

Saona Island, 15 miles (25 kilometers) long and three miles (5 kilometers) wide, is the largest coastal island in the Dominican Republic and is part of the Cotubanamá National Park, a natural area in almost virgin conditions where it has more than one hundred species of birds, hawksbill turtles, manatees and dolphins, among other animal species.

The towns of Mano Juan and Catuano

The island has two small human settlements: Mano Juan and Catuano. The first is a small fishing village of unique beauty, with its wooden houses in different colors, gracefully aligned in front of the beach.
