Discover the beauty of Saona Island with 3 hours of free time to explore its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters.


  • Take a convenient transfer to Saona Island from Punta Cana or Bavaro
  • Enjoy a tasty Dominican buffet lunch and open bar
  • Enjoy 3-hours of free time on the beautiful island


Start with pickup from your hotel in Puna Cana or Bavaro. Enjoy the scenery on the transfer to Bayahibe beach, where you'll board either a catamaran or speedboat for the ride to Saona Island.   Saona Island is a 42-square-kilometer Caribbean gem 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. Find a seat on the deck and enjoy the sun and water on the way to the idyllic island of Saona. Make a short 20-minute stop at a large natural swimming pool for a quick swim. Once you arrive, enjoy free time to explore the island at your own pace, making this tour a great choice for independent travelers. Optional activities include volleyball and dance lessons, or you can simply relax on the provided lounge chairs and sip drinks from the open bar. Stroll down the white sand beach under the swaying palm trees to collect shells or go for a swim until it's time for the barbecue-style buffet lunch. Indulge in a typical Dominican lunch of chicken, pork, rice, beans, salad, and fruit. After three hours on the island, be returned to your accommodation back on the mainland.
