Tropical paradise Dominican Republic

Saona Island Paradise

Enjoy a relaxing all-day excursion to Saona Island Dominican Republic, also known as Bounty Island. We begin at your hotel in the morning where you will be picked up in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus by a certified tour guide.

After enjoying the panoramic ride through the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic to the small fishing village of Bayahibe. Here, we will board the speedboats and travel south along the national park until we reach Saona Island.

Before arriving at Saona Island we stop for a quick swim in the natural swimming pool. This is a very shallow and calm place in the ocean where there are lots of starfish. After our refreshing swim, we jump back on the boat and head for Saona where hours of fun and relaxation await! Once here, you can learn how to dance the Merengue, get a relaxing massage ($), go for a swim in the Caribbean ocean, play a game of beach volleyball, or just relax under the palm trees with a cool beverage and a good book. Saona has a little something for everyone.

After about 1 hour – 1 hour 30 min on the island, a delicious Dominican buffet lunch is served including rice, BBQ chicken/fish/pork chops, salad, pasta, fruit, etc. What better way to enjoy a good home-cooked meal than with your feet in the sand and the beautiful ocean right next to you.

Around 2:30 p.m. we get ready to leave Saona Island. The trip back to Bayahibe will be a beautiful cruise along the coastline on a catamaran. On the way back to the hotel we will make a quick stop for some shopping at a souvenir shop where you will find great bargains on everything like jewelry, cigars, coffee, and Dominican arts and crafts.
