Discover Paradise on Saona Island, where white sandy beaches, clear turquoise waters, and countless palm trees provide an unspoiled environment that vacation dreams are made of.

Know More about this tour

After pickup from your Bayahibe hotel, your day tour starts with the drive to the fishing village of Bayahibe, where you'll board a catamaran or speedboat for the ride across the sea to Saona Island.

Spend the morning taking in the natural beauty of this national park, home to pristine beaches and clear Caribbean waters. Participate in activities like volleyball or meringue and salsa dancing, or just relax on a lounge chair on the beach. Souvenir shacks are available if you feel like browsing, and you can grab a refreshing drink at the open bar.

A buffet-style barbecue lunch is served with items like chicken, steamed fish, spaghetti, fried potatoes, salad, white rice, vegetables, tropical fruit, and French bread. The open bar has local drinks, coffee, soft drinks, and water. After about three hours of total time on the island, re-board the boat for the ride back to the mainland, stopping by a 'natural pool' in the sea for a swim. You may also spot starfish in the water during your 1-hour stop here.

When you return to Bayahibe, disembark and board a bus back to your hotel.

    Die Tour hat gehalten was versprochen wurde. Tolle Insel auf der man zwar nicht alleine ist, aber dies weiss man im voraus. Trotz nicht gerade bestem Wetter waren die Guids immer freundlich und bestens gelaunt. Wer Spaß daran hat genügend Rum mit Cola zu trinken für den lohnt sich der Ausflug alle mal. Kompliment an Veranstalter alles geklappt vom Hotel Transfer bis zum Abschluss der tour.

    Saona Island and the natural pool were beautiful and I would recommend seeing both however maybe another company’s tour would be better. This excursion felt very disorganized and had a few problems. First the taxi driver was late to pick us up, he drove aggressively and I was concerned since our 1 year old was with us. Then we waited awhile at a beach in groups for our speedboat. The speedboat was tight and had motor problems twice on our way to the natural pool. Made us feel very uneasy. Natural pool was great to swim. After, we arrived at Saona Island. The lunch buffet had long lines of people and ran out of plates and food. Also, this excursion says bottled water included but there wasn’t throughout the whole trip. You could get a cup of water but who wants to risk drinking that in a foreign country! We were told that we would get a catamaran to take us back. 15 minutes earlier than our expected departure we were rushed onto a speedboat that we had to take and transfer onto the catamaran. This was difficult with our 1 year old going from boat to boat. We were not allowed shoes on the catamaran which was very slippery. The ride and music was nice but we had to transfer to another boat yet again to reach the beach before our taxi took us back to our hotel. Scenery was beautiful. Organization terrible!

    A ida de bahiable para Isla saona demasiado demorada, 3 horas para chegar ao destino. Entretanto no barco, pedem para tirar fotos com o objetivo de faturarem. Na vinda de regresso, parecia o peditório das igrejas, um rapaz com uma cesta a passar por toda a gente a pedir gorjeta (propina). Estivemos na ilha no máximo 2 horas incluindo o almoço, o que é pouco para desfrutar da ilha. O guia era mal educado e antipatico. Recomendo a visita à ilha e à piscina natural, no entanto, escolham lancha rápida para aproveitarem melhor o tempo.

    Terrible experience. The worst excursion I have been on my life. The boats are dirty, without care. The catamaran was the worst, the restroom smells terrible, with a lot of garbage and no toilet paper. Our tour guide, Mama Lina, arrives saying profanities, without a bra on a body hugging t shirt, with a disgusting an unprofessional conduct and look. For our return, they promise a catamaran party and we’re happy for that, what a deception!!. They put the most vulgar songs in spanish and english from beginning to end, we’re ashamed. The tour guide dance with the men on the most vulgar way that you can imagine. They never control the alcohol consumption and some girls are so drunk, that they can’t walk or even talk. Don’t misunderstand me, we are modern people and we love modern dance and music, but that was disgusting. On this type of entertainment, you have to be polite, educated and professional, there’s kids and old persons present. Saona island is a beautiful place, the food is simple but good, and the beach is very beautiful, unfortunately this company damages the nice experience.

    La beauté de l'île, trop de touristes qui nuisent à l'environnement de cette île. Nous avons été déçu du transport à l'aller comme au retour, le chauffeur était en retard le matin, nous a déposer sans nous donner d'instruction pour le retour, ce qui fut compliqué pour nous au retour, une personne a téléphoné à l'agence pour le retour
