Saona Island, Dominican Republic

Saona Island (or in Spanish, Isla Saona) is a beautiful hideaway located to the southeast of Dominican Republic mainland. The island is part of a national park system known as Parque de Cotubanama (formerly known as Parque Nacional Del Este) and is part of a government protected nature reserve.

Just one hour away by boat from the town of Bayahibe, it is a draw for tourists, locals, and even movie producers attempting to replicate the postcard-perfect hedonistic “deserted island paradise”. By far one of the most Instagrammable day trips offered to tourists, its popularity is no secret.

Heaven on Earth

Your senses will be assaulted by the lush jungles and rows upon rows of palm trees swaying in the gentle tropical breeze offering just the right amount of shade from the hot tropical sun. Dig your toes in unspoiled white sand beaches as you walk along the shoreline, searching for seashells, marveling at nature and exploring paradise. One thing is for sure, the hypnotic effects of the tropical waters will leave you fresh and relaxed. This is one destination you will not want to miss.
