The best beaches in the Dominican Republic? Without a doubt Saona Island and Catalina Island are 2 of them.
If you want to go to a paradisiacal beach, with turquoise blue waters, goldfish, relaxed under the shade of a coconut palm, with a unique time, in the middle of nature and with views of a postcard landscape, what place would you think? Surely in the Dominican Republic. On the island there are many beaches, some lost, others better known and busy, but without a doubt many of them are worth a visit. We propose a couple of them that you should not miss during your Caribbean vacation in the DR.
1. Saona Island
Saona Island is reached by catamaran from the fishing village called Bayahibe. It is one of the largest islands in the Dominican Republic. It belongs to the province of La Romana and is within the Cotubanamá National Park (Eastern National Park). Usually in the excursions a stop is made in Las Palmillas, a natural pool in which the water, totally transparent, reaches you by the waist. Once you are on Saona Island you will enjoy an almost uninhabited island, you will be in pure nature, surrounded by endless beaches and palm trees. No doubt a piece of paradise on earth that you have to know.

In its paradisiacal beaches with white sands and in the crystal clear waters that surround it live different species of birds and fish. The island was named after the navigator Christopher Columbus on his journey through the area in May 1494. It is a popular snorkeling and diving spot, given the nature of its translucent waters and which is surrounded by live corals in which colorful fish live.
