This was a beautiful island. The water was warm, the sun was perfect! This was the absolute highlight of my trip, the time I spent soaking up the sun here.

Such a beautiful place . Enjoyed the food on the beach and all the locals selling coconut water and souvenirs. Lots of beautiful views and so natural and quiet . Beautiful place to get away from the resort . Will definitely return

Beautiful beach. Multiple excursions companies offer options of half or full days. We took the full day and as expected, chaos ensued with the bus travel to the boat but once you're on the catamaran and see the water, you're hooked. Take it easy on...More

Shawn I booked the trip with Amstar. Better to book the standard trip than the VIP Isla Saona was nice but the stay was too short. Lobster lunch was not too good. Snorkling on the way to Saona was nice Enjoy! Massimo
