  • We took a helicopter flight to Saona Island for lunch and it was spectacular. The water is warm and crystal clear just like in pictures. Highly recommend this excursion.

  • Absolute beautiful unspoiled beaches...one of a kind!! A day trip beach getaway!!
  • Nice island
  • The sand has the most wonderful texture. The water is clean and oddly cool. Picturesque. You'll get that Palm tree on the beach pic that you've always wanted. Oh, and SPF30 was not enough. And yes, it was 100usd, and the local economy really appreciates the money you bring in so spend the hundred bucks and go buy some souvenirs.
  • Nice Island, Not worth the excursion from the resorts. 100 USD to do the same thing you're doing at your own resort. Put the money into something more interesting like the adventurous tours.
  • Awesome place, very beautiful and calm waters. Also the natural pools are great for swimming. I just didn’t see any fish as I was expecting. It is a must visit in Punta Cana, breathtaking views!
