Saona Island Day Trip From Punta Cana
Visit Saona Island, an idyllic speck of sand and palm trees in the blue Caribbean, during a 10-hour tour from Punta Cana. Board a small speedboat for the thrilling ride out to the island, including a stop at a natural swimming pool where you can see starfish. Upon reaching Saona Island, spend the day exploring; stroll along the beach, relax in the white sand and swim in the azure waters. Sip drinks from the open bar and enjoy a buffet lunch of traditional Dominican fare. Round-trip transportation from Punta Cana is included.
What to Expect
Isla Saona is a 42 square kilometer Caribbean oasis off the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. Originally named "Adamanay" by the Taino Indians, the island was renamed by Christopher Columbus, during his second voyage to the Americas in 1494. The name, "Saona", commemorated his friend Michele da Cuneo, from Savona, Italy.

You will be raced you out to the island in a speed boat that includes a stop in a waist deep natural swimming pool of transparent waters. If you're lucky you'll see some starfish! At Isla Saona, you'll have many choices: wade in the turquoise waters, visit the open bar, take a nap on a beach lounge chair, play volleyball, indulge in a typical Dominican lunch of chicken, pork, rice, beans, salad and fruit, or walk the coastline. Take your time and do it all!
