Saona Island Day Trips from Punta Cana

211 Reviews
With its swaying palm trees, powder-white sands, and starfish-filled natural pools, Saona Island (Isla Saona) is every bit the postcard image of a Caribbean paradise. Reachable only by boat, the island makes a popular choice for a day trip from Punta Cana. Here are your options.

Group Tours
Group tours offer the best value for your money and typically include plenty of stops for swimming and snorkeling at the island’s beaches and natural swimming pools, along with a buffet lunch, an open bar, and onboard entertainment. Some tours also include a stop at Los Altos de Chavon, a visit to the island villages of Mano Juan and Catuano, or snorkeling and wildlife watching in the Del Este National Park.

Private Tours
Private tours ensure a personalized experience and can be tailored to your preferences, so you can fill your day with water sports and outdoor activities, or seek out a deserted beach to relax and sunbathe. A private tour can also be a big time saver. You’ll avoid long transfers with multiple pickups and drop-offs, and head straight to the island instead.
