More than an ordinary excursion…
“Canto de la Playa “today:
A few years ago, “Canto de la Playa” was considered “The pearl of Saona”. Today, things have changed since visits of this beach have increased considerably, nevertheless remains one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places on Saona Island.
Santo Domingo Vacation D’Elite has chosen to make this hike only with small groups and small and medium-sized boats, but, above all, chose to get on this beautiful beach during the early hours in the morning, when there is no one or very few people, and leave when the great flow of tourists has arrived.
Our excursion to Saona “Canto de la Playa” is unique for 2 simple factors:
1 – Discovery of true tropical paradises
2- Activities included: snorkeling, cultural tours and rural walks
This trip takes you to the last beach of the stunning Saona Island, an enchanted place where the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean meets the warmer ones of the Caribbean sea.
“Canto de la Playa” is the farest and amazing beach of Saona Island.
