Saona Island Excursion
Saona Island Excursion
A day of swimming, relaxing, and exploring is all yours. Enjoy a casual cruise on a catamaran or a sailboat from Punta Cana to Saona Island, home to some of the Dominican Republic's best beaches. Along the way to the island, keep on the lookout for marine creatures as you pass near the coral reefs and take time for a swim in a natural pool.
After a refreshing swim, it's back on the boat for the rest of the journey to Saona Island. As you relax, try a sample of a drink made with local rum! Once on the island, you'll have time for a swim and a rejuvenating snack before heading to Palmilla Beach. This secluded, private location is the setting for a barbecue lunch. As the sun sets, it's time to head back to Punta Cana on a sailboat.
Instead of sailing, you may opt to take a speedboat either to or from Saona Island.
