Welcome to Paradise!
Saona Island is located in the middle of a national park
Take a boat to the paradisiacal island.
Discover exotic sea creatures ...
... And relax on the beautiful beach
White, palm-fringed sandy beaches. Postcard panorama. Idyllic mangrove forests. On this day trip you will experience the Caribbean waters from their most beautiful side. Enjoy the impressive drive with a speed boat or catamaran through the waters of the Caribbean Sea and let yourself be enchanted by this unique nature.
You will be picked up at your hotel in Santo Domingo and drive to the fishing village of Bayahibe. Once in Bayahibe, you can take a speedboat or catamaran to Saona Island National Park's Parque Nacional del Este. The journey will take you past glorious, pristine beaches and through mangrove forests - habitat for many rare species of fish and birds. Saona may well have the most beautiful white Caribbean beaches ever, surrounded by turquoise, clear waters. There are about 1,000 locals living on the island, mainly from fishing and hunting for pigeons and wild boar. The shallow water around the island with its mangrove ecosystem is an ideal refuge for fish, birds and other marine animals. Here you will find magnificent frigatebirds, pelicans, herons and boobies. On the way there, stop for a swim and visit the Piscina Natural, a large sandbank in the middle of the sea. You will be hip-deep in the water - enjoy the colorful fish in the sea with a cocktail or swim around. Discover large red starfish on the seabed through the crystal clear waters. At lunchtime, a local barbecue is organized on the beach. In the afternoon, return to Bayahibe and return to Santo Domingo.
