This place is the most beautiful beach we visited during our Punta Cana trip but be prepared to waste 3 hours way in transportation. I recommend to have some protection for your feet as about 35 ft from the shore the beach is rocky and...More

The water was beautiful. The catamaran was ok but rather out dated. The speed boat ride was uncomfortable but fun. Unfortunately the food did not look appetizing so I did not bother eating;

We took a day trip from the Royalton Bavaro through Nexus Tours (onsite). We used AmStar for our travel, but when we compared Saona prices for 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids) Nexus was $50 less expensive ($300 overall). We were supposed to be...More

I love the Tour to Isla Saona. Taking a catamaran and returning in a speed boat. You get food and show in Saona and the water is warm and clear. The best of all is when they take you to the natural swimming pool, you...More

We booked an excursion that included a stop for snorkeling and a stop at a sand bar. The sand bar stop was good. The snorkeling not so much. The snorkeling mouthpieces were visibly dirty and there were so many boats anchored so close together it’s...More

The beach itself is gorgeous however, the rocks and coral all over the shore is very very dangerous and keeps you from really enjoying that pristine beach. The crew of the catamaran was extremely unprofessional and constantly texting on their phones. They seemed as if...More
