Travel Tips from people who've been to Isla Saona
Isla Saona

Isla Saona is located off of the south-east tip of the Dominican republic. It is a government protected island that is a popular destination for visitors to the mainland every year.  Full of lush caribbean vegetation and an abundance of wildlife whether its above or below the water. 

It is the perfect place to relax in the warm Caribbean tropics, with the island surrounded by white sandy beaches. Who can't imagine walking around this exotic location, a true beauty in itself. Whilst you are there, you have to sample rum in a coconut, its exotic flavours are enough to entice the tongue. It is definitely a must whilst your visiting the island.
But the main attraction for this area is its marine wildlife which can be viewed around the low lying sandbanks. The wildlife around here is unique and exotic, with hundreds of species of fish, corals, and other marine wildlife. 
 
To top of the perfect day in my opinion, you have to get a  catamaran  back to the mainland island, lying on the netting as the sea brushed your face. Whilst on board take advantage of the drinks whilst listening to the vast range of caribbean music and admiring the spectacular views, as the Caribbean's like to say, "It's all Inclusive". The perfect destination in a great holiday.

Typical one day trip if you're in Punta Cana, La Romana, or the surroundings, but it's totally worth it. You can swim in amazingly clear, light blue waters of the Caribbean, have nice food, and come back while having ron & coca cola and nice merengue lessons on a boat with far too loud music. Could it be anything more fun??

VERY beautiful! The bounty adverts were filmed on this island a few years ago. It is a lovely place to relax in the sun. The water is crystal clear, and the sea floor is covered in starfish. Lovely for snorkelling or diving a bit further off the shore.
