White sand, warm and cristaline water and lot of palms
There’s many a sun-drenched destination that can claim to be a little piece of paradise on Earth, but with its pristine turquoise waters, vertiginous palm trees and swathes of sandy beaches, the Dominican Republic comes closer than most.
Yet, while it’s renowned for its stunning coastline, dig a little deeper and this country reveals itself as one of the Caribbean’s most intriguing and multi-dimensional luxury holiday destinations. Once the home of Christopher Columbus’s first colony, the Dominican Republic has a wealth of culinary, musical and cultural traditions, all played out against a rich backdrop of history.
The greatest strip of beaches in the world
The best-known beaches are those of Punta Cana, the island’s tourist destination par excellence, which attracts the largest number of tourists in the country and rightly so, because it is an area full of hotels for all budgets and where you can do whatever you want and it is within your budget.
But in the DR there is much more to discover and among the best beaches of the Dominican territory and the Caribbean are those of the islands of Saona and Catalina.
Saona is best known for enjoying a relaxing day in paradise. It is no longer a dream to be on an endless beach, with crystal clear waters, tropical climate and palm trees, but a reality at the hand of everyone, but that makes your vacation deluxe.
On the way to Saona, a stop is made in the natural pool. Without a doubt, an essential visit to fully experience your trip to the Caribbean. The natural pool is in the East National Park, a protected park. There you can bathe with transparent water at the waist and enjoy a landscape without equal.
In Saona there is also an interesting stop in Mano Juan, the only inhabited town on this island. In it you can see how the locals live and visit the green turtle reserve, in which they care for and preserve the life of this species of turtles in danger of extinction.
Catalina, like Saona, has infinite beaches and great beauty, which will surely make you relax and enjoy an unforgettable excursion, but it is also one of the best places in the country to go snorkeling or diving.
Without a doubt, the Dominican Republic is a holiday destination that has it all, at a good price and without a doubt, luxury. A paradise corner on earth.
