Isla Saona Tour: discovering a paradise on Earth

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

One of the best dream beaches in the Caribbean

The Saona Island with 15 miles (25 kilometers) long and three miles (5 kilometers) wide is the largest coastal island of the Dominican Republic and is part of the Cotubanama National Park, a natural area in almost virgin conditions where there are 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 one is a small fishing village of singular beauty, with its wooden houses in different colors, lined up in a funny way in front of the beach. Catuano, located at the other end of the island, is basically a military area where a detachment of the Navy has its headquarters.


✅ Our Saona Island Excursion 😎

We start by picking you up at the hotel/resort or exact location in the town of Bavaro Punta Cana, early in the morning. After your pick up, we will leave in a comfortable bus to the picturesque town of Bayahibe.

From the port of Bayahibe we will have two ways to get to the island: in a beautiful catamaran or in big speedboats. If we go by catamaran, we will return by speedboat, if we go by speedboat, we will return by catamaran and vice versa. We’re clear, right? Don’t worry, all the boats comply with safety regulations, and throughout the trip, you will be accompanied by expert guides who speak your language. COOL!

Heading to Saona Island on a Catamaran

On the beautiful catamaran, we can enjoy the open bar of soft drinks, national alcoholic beverages and water, taste snacks and tropical fruits. We will sail for approximately 2 hours on this sailboat, enjoying a beautiful landscape and a very good animation with a team of girls and boys who will make us spend a very fun afternoon to the rhythm of the Caribbean.

Saona, a real image of paradise on Earth

Finally, after sailing, around 11:00 am, we will arrive at Saona Island, “the pearl of the Caribbean Sea”. On the island, we will have time to swim in its crystal clear waters, or simply enjoy the beach, eyes! classified by Caribbean & Life among the best beaches in the world. Woohoo!

Guaranteed fun for the whole family + exquisite food

On one of the beaches we will have an area reserved for us, where we can relax, take incredible pictures or participate in activities, such as meringue and salsa classes with the animation team.

Around 1:30 p.m., in a covered restaurant area with beautiful palapas and palm trees, we will have a delicious buffet that offers exquisite Dominican Creole food, such as spaghetti, chops, fish, grilled chicken, white rice and legumes, vegetables, tropical fruits and … if we choose the VIP option of the tour, we will have included WINE AND LANGOSTA in an area exclusive to us.

The natural swimming pool at Palmilla beach in Cotubanamá park

After lunch and having taken a regenerative nap on the beach, around 2:30 p.m., we embark on comfortable speedboats to navigate to the next stop: the largest sandbank in the area called … THE NATURAL POOL!

In the pool we will be able to swim in shallow crystalline waters, ideal for diving and taking incredible pictures in the midst of multiple marine species, in particular, the beautiful starfish ( we recommend that you do not take them out of the sea). It is there, with the water at your waist, where we will make the toast with the famous “VITAMINA R”, a real drink of Dominican rum or mamajuana.

We end up arriving at the port of Bayahibe and our buses will take us back to the hotels where we will arrive around 6:00 pm.

Saona Island, located in the southeastern corner of the Dominican Republic, is the largest of the islands adjacent to the Spanish island and is part of the eastern national park and serves as a sanctuary for several species of migratory birds.

Originally its name was Adamanay, it is a primitive aboriginal name, it is presumed that in the second trip of Don Cristobal Colon to the island Hispaniola, he was accompanied by an Italian who was the one who discovered the island, Columbus wanted to name the island in honor of him with the name of Saona Island.


During the years the inhabitants of the island found the name difficult to pronounce, so they changed it to Saona Island. The island has interesting caves, such as the famous Cotubanama, named in memory of the proud indigenous chief of this same region who was captured by the Spanish conquistadors and executed in Santo Domingo, one of the few populated areas of this national park.

Saona Island has a picturesque settlement called Mano Juan, this fishing village with its houses in different pastel colors is also a center of ancient crafts.

The majesty queen

In the excursion to the Saona Island we will find kilometers of lonely beaches of fine white sand and crystalline waters, surrounded by palm trees of tasty coconuts, caves that remind us of the pre-existence of the native Tainos, coral beds ideal for diving lovers and “the majestic queen” the natural pool, where you can observe countless marine and terrestrial species, such as starfish, multiple birds, (one of these is the flamingo) the marine manatee that is in danger of extinction and the friendly and surprising dolphin.
