The national park-protected Saona Island (or Isla Saona) lies just off the southern coast of the Dominican Republic.

Lovely beaches fringe this remote slice of heaven, with the best swimming at Mano Juan and Punta Gorda. It’s an ideal beach getaway for a day’s excursion by catamaran.

The population numbers little more than 300 lucky souls, and beach and eco-touring activities are the main drawcards, along with the island’s lagoons, caves and offshore snorkeling.

The island measures around 15 miles long by 3 miles wide (25 kilometers by 5 kilometers).

Practical Info

Saona Island is part of the Parque Nacional del Este on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic. The closest towns are Bayahibe and Boca de Yuma.
