Saona Island ”Canto de la Playa”, Excursion in the Dominican Republic

This trip takes you to the enchanted place where the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean meet the warmer ones of the Caribbean sea, at the last beach of the stunning Saona Island. Called Canto de la Playa, this beach is part of the protected natural habitat of Saona Island and is home to conservation efforts that include sea turtles.

It is a blissful, pristine beach and perfect for relaxing, or snorkelling in the coral reefs. Historic Mano Juan, an authentic fishing village on Saona with a population of 300, is an interesting stop before leaving the island to see the mangrove garden and natural sea pools full of starfish on the way home to Bayahibe.
