Saona Island, Dominican Republic


There are many places on our planet that can be described as heaven on earth, Saona Island is one of them, a spectacular island with amazing beaches in the Caribbean.


Saona Island or Isla Saona is a tropical island located a short distance from the mainland on the south-east tip of the Dominican Republic, near La Altagracia Province. It is a government protected nature reserve and a popular destination for tourists from all over the Dominican Republic, who arrive in fleets of catamarans and small motorboats on organized excursions every day. The Island is famous for the natural beauty of its beaches, I sure would include it in my 10 beach places I would love to travel, and has been used on many occasions by film-makers and advertisers looking for a stereotypical 'desert island' setting for their film or product. It is promoted amongst European visitors as the setting for the famous Bounty chocolate bar adverts.
