  • Address: Isla Catalina
This tiny island just 1.5 miles off the mainland provides a peaceful respite for those looking to escape the hustle of Dominican Republic’s busier city streets. Most hotels offer shuttle buses to boat docks. A reasonable ride delivers passengers to the sand dunes, mangroves and coral reefs that make this island a destination for visitors. Avid divers will enjoy weaving in and out of the numerous reefs that surround Isla Cantina. Stingrays and tropical fish are a near guarantee here. Less experienced water lovers can spend the day snorkeling in some of the clearest waters this country has to offer.

Practical Info

A trip from the mainland to this beautiful island can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, making it an ideal day trip destination. Nervous travelers should be sure to check for working motors and adequate life jackets, since the quality of rides can vary greatly.
