  • Isla muy linda! Very beautiful island. The water is is gorgeous. Once you arrive the food and drinks are free. Its quite large, so if you walk you can find a more quiet spot. I was hoping for some snorkeling, but visibility was 0, so i couldn't even tell if there was coral. Still a really chilled island to spend a day at. As they control how many people come on the island, make sure you use a reputable travel service to reserve the boat, as we were kicked on and off the boat several times and ber booked through Princess adult resorts.
  • Stunning island. White sands and crystal blue water. The coach trip from la romana is over sn hour thrn thr boat journey is long. They take you out a quarter of the way into yhe ocean on a dmall boat then transfer you in yhe middle of the sea to a catamaran.this was an experience. They had to hold the boats together do people voild be transferred and this took forever as they kept losing the ropes to hold them together. Once everyone was transferred it was a beautiful journey. Arriving at the island you get off into the water and they provide lunch. Uou can buy s pina volada in a pineapple for 10 dollars. Expensive but delicious. The sea is crystal vlear and the island is do beautiful. You come back on a deed boat so it's one journey. They do stop in then ocean do upu can swim amongst the star fish which is stunning. Its shoulder height waters. I can't swim and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience
  • It was an amazing experience !! Saona Island is a real pearl of nature! We've also visited sea turtles sanctuary, I highly recommend this place to visit!
  • An amazingly beautiful island with super chill beaches amid palm groves that actually reach the water line in some places. There are so many ways to spend the time - you can snorkel in the mini reef looking for starfish and other sea denizens or you can just chill in a lounge chair or you can take a walk along the beach. Many things to do and all of them fun. You get there by a boat, usually as part of a whole day excursion with all the food and drinks included. Definitely recommend for a day in the sun.
  • Saona Island in the Dominican Republic is a real paradise for tourists. You must definitely visit and see with your own eyes all the beauty of the nature of the Caribbean) But it is better to go to it on a high-speed boat, and not on a catamaran ..
