Full day tour
To get to Isla Saona, you must travel by speedboat or Catamaran. On the way, you may be lucky enough to see a dolphin; the route is around 30 minutes until you reach Palmilla, a natural pool in the open sea. In Palmilla, you can enjoy the low-level water; for an average-sized person, the water is up to their chest, and the place is astonishing.
On the island, you can enjoy the open bar of national alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, buffet lunch, lie down in the hammocks, play volleyball, or sunbathe and bathe in the beautiful crystal clear water.
Some other activities or amenities you could do on the island are relaxing massages, piña coladas, and coconut water, among others, but these could have an extra cost.
It will be approximately a 1 hour and 30 minutes journey (On Catamaran) to the port, where we previously took the speedboat or Catamaran at the beginning. If the return occurs in a catamaran, you'll find music and entertainment aboard by the catamaran staff. You could lie in the hammocks or enjoy the view, drinking from the national open bar served aboard.
