Isla Saona

Isla Saona An ideal beach getaway for a day's excursion by catamaran, Saona Island (Isla Saona) lies just off the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. Lovely beaches fringe this remote slice of heaven, with the best swimming at Mano Juan and Punta Gorda. The population numbers little more than 300 lucky souls, while beach and eco-tour activities are the main draws for travelers, along with the island’s lagoons, caves, and offshore snorkeling.
