Points of Interest Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana: Isla Saona

While staying at Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana, guests have the opportunity to visit Isla Saona, a small yet beautiful island off the southeast shore of the Dominican Republic. The island, deemed an official nature reserve by the Dominican government, is home to a wide array of tropical animals. It is particularly well-known for its pristine beaches and abundance of natural sandbars, which provide visitors with an excellent snorkeling experience.

Christopher Columbus discovered this gem of the Caribbean Sea on his second voyage to North America in 1494. Saona was actually named in honor of Savona, Italy, where Columbus resided at the time. The two locations still continue their close partnership to this day—Saona even boasts a small power plant that was a gift from the Italian city.

Due to its easy access and supreme natural beauty, guests at Zoëtry Agua should definitely check out Isla Saona for a memorable day trip during their stay!
