About this Punta Cana tour
Set sail out of Port of Bayahibe, a little fishing village along the sparkling Punta Cana Coast. Your destination is the coveted Saona Island and its sidekick, La Palmilla - a virgin beach. On this lucky catamaran trip, cut a path where coral reefs dot the coast of the Eastern National Park. You'll visit a sandbar, starfish habitat, and kick back with refreshing drinks made with that quintessential splash of Dominican rum. Once you reach Saona Island, the party atmosphere mixes seamlessly with the serenity of the white shore and intensely blue water.
Take a dip, then set your course for La Palmilla, where nothing but R&R is prescribed beneath the swaying coconut palms. This is your playa-ground or playground, and it stands to reason you've built up quite an appetite. That's why the Saona Island buffet is both a visual and gustatory treat. Chefs are making all the Caribbean staples under a breezy tent: chicken on the grill with an island kick, spicy pastas and rice dishes, fresh catch from the sea. You can wash it all down with tropical drinks that belong on a beach, ice cold water and beers should you choose.
This is an all-day adventure, so your guides suggest packing extra towels and clothes for the trip back. Just before dusk, there is a catamaran sailing back to Bayahibe Fishing village. By day's end, you will be ready for this -- tired, but only in that beautiful, beachy way. You know it: your head is clear, you see the world in a calmer, newer light. You are the walking embodiment of a relaxed and refreshed person.
Sanoa Island is so beautiful as to be decadent…like chocolate
The bounty hunters are there, and they are searching for a taste of paradise! The European company that makes Bounty coconut chocolate bars shot their ads on Saona Island, and you're not sure if they want you to buy their candy or book a trip! We suggest the latter.
