Full description

We start off at 9 AM from the public beach of Dominicus Americanus via a speedboat or a motomaran and head in the direction of the famous Saona island.

Accompanied by the charming Caribbean rhythms we will have our first stop in the Natural Pools, a huge area of crystal clear shallow waters, home to the Caribbean starfish. Music, various drinks ant rum will add to the fun and pleasure as we spend around 40 min bathing in this small paradise.

Afterwards, on our way out of the Natural Pools we pass by the mangroves’ area as well as the Catuano channel, the division between the main Dominican island and Saona, and head to one of the most gorgeous beaches called Saona Paradise arriving at around 11AM. The beach is very spacious and clean, provides sunbeds (free of charge), bathrooms (male and female), showers, open bar (Coca Cola, Sprite, water, orange juice, coffee, rum, beer). Our charming photographer Cuchi Cuchi will be at your disposal in case you want a professional photoshoot on the island (paid for at the end of the excursion). At noon we invite our guests to enjoy a rich private buffet: barbecue (grilled chicken and pork), fish, beef meatballs, rice, bean sauce, boiled potatoes, seafood paella, both hot and cold pasta, fresh vegetables and fruits, bread. After lunch you will be able to enjoy the sun and the sea until 1:30PM.

Once the beach is full we will leave for our next destination – the only inhabited place on Saona island, a small fishermen’s village called Mano Juan. You will get to enjoy 30-40 min of free time to explore the village or stay on the beach, whatever you prefer.

Afterwards, we will leave for the most remote beach of Saona, the mesmerizing Canto de la Playa with its white sands and crystal clear waters, considered to be one of the most beautiful natulal beaches in the whole world. We will drop anchor here when the majority of the companies have already left which will give our clients the opportunity to enjoy this paradise without the mass tourism which occupies this area in the morning.

Afterwards, we head back and arrive to the public beach of  Dominicus Americanus around 5:30PM.

Why is tour Saona V.I.P. our absolute BESTSELLER?

What are the main differences between our excursion Saona V.I.P. Canto de la Playa and numerous other seemingly identical tours to this island offered by other agencies or inside the resorts?

Well, let us break them down for you:

  1. The groups we have include only up to 35 people.
  2. We offer our guests a stay on one of the biggest and most exclusive beaches of Saona, fully equipped. Being the first ones to arrive we get to enjoy the place alone before the other groups start arriving.
  3. We offer the most complete tour of the island, visiting 4 different locations including the Canto de la playa beach and the local village Mano Juan, in comparison to numerous companies offering only the Natural pools and lunch on the island.
  4. Our tour has a reversed program, meaning we visit all the famous spots whenever the rest of the groups are still on their way or have already left, giving you the possibility to experience Saona in a more private manner!
  5. We offer the best quality / price ratio.
  6. Multilingual guides: English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian.
  7. Non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks included (rum, Coca Cola, Sprite, water on the boat; rum, beer,  Coca Cola, Sprite, water, orange juice, coffee on the beach) throughout the excursion.

We assure you that we will do our best to make this day for you … UNFORGETTABLE ❤️❤️❤️
