One of the best excursions we have ever experienced. The water was unreal in how clear and the beach was beautiful.

Visited the island whilst on holiday in punta Cana. The journey on a catamaran was really good and then the speed boat to the natural swimming pool where we got to see star fish was good. The island of Saona however was a disappointment but was dirty with rubbish dropped all over the beach and broken sun loungers. Too many... More

We took this excursion from Breathless. It took 2 hours to get to the port. Once in the powerboat it was a twenty minute ride to the natural pool to look for starfish. Not too many but we found one on our own. Rum and cokes were served. Another 15 minutes later we got to Saona Island. Nice beach and... More

Sanoa Island it a fun all day getaway and you get to see the countryside on the way there. You ride a party boat to the island, and once there, there is a buffet, drinks, and beautiful beach to relax.

We booked a day trip to Saona Island. I had seen the photos and was very excited for this. I had booked a tour for English speakers and when the bus pulled up we found we were the only English speakers and found we were left out a lot. We got a speed boat out and got to the beach.... More

We took a catamaran to the island, had the opportunity to snorkel then stopped to look for star fish and swim in the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. Then on to the island where we were served a lovely lunch of fresh lobster chicken pork and a variety of side dishes. Time to sunbathe or swim before going back to the harbour... More

We got a tour from Be Live Hotel Collection (on the beach) that went here. I have never seen something so pretty before. Unlike Punta Cana where the water is grey during winter, in this paradise, the water is blue year round. Great for family and those who love a quick getaway. Priceless locations for photographs that you'll keep forever,... More

Saona was our favorite Honeymoon excursion. Absolutely beautiful!!! We stayed at the Hard Rock and booked this excursion through the hotel. Was worth every penny! Beautiful waters, catamaran and speed boat rides to and from the island were awesome.

This is a fantastic place to visit. the beach is beautiful and its just a wonder view. Sellers will approach but they are just trying to make a living. A firm no thank you will make them exit. Still worth the visit just to take in its beauty.
