Visit the most pristine corners of the Dominican Republic with this tour of the beaches of Saona Island from La Romana. Paradise awaits!
Tour of Saona Island Beaches
Between 7 am and 9 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel and hit the road to Bayahibe, where we'll get on a boat to travel to Saona Island.
During the cruise there, we'll make a stop at Palmilla beach, a dreamy spot located in the middle of Cotubanamá National Park. Then, arriving at Saona Island, we'll check out the famous beaches of La Caleta and Mano Juan, where we'll take a swim and enjoy the immense rows of coconut trees until lunchtime.
Around lunchtime, we'll refuel with a delicious meal consisting of fish or chicken, accompanied by rice, salad, fresh fruits and drinks. With our batteries recharged, we'll travel to the fishing town of Mano Juan to visit the sea turtle conservation center, where we'll get to learn about the incubation process and the care of newly hatched turtles.
Next up? Los Flamencos Beach, another stretch of sand with endemic vegetation bathed by the Caribbean Sea. But that's not all! We'll also get back on the boat to tour the black, button, white and red mangrove areas.
During the trip, you'll see schools of tropical fish and other marine species. You can even swim to see the area's starfish! Being very careful, of course, not to disturb their habitat.
To end the experience, we'll have a toast with a famous Dominican rum. Afterwards, we'll take you back to your hotel and arrive sometime between 5 and 6:30 pm.
