Samana - Bounty Island

Duration: Full Day

samana - bounty island

The Bounty Hunters came in search of Paradise, and found it on Cayo Levantado. This jewel of a tiny island lies just off the Samana Peninsula and is our destination for a day of pure escapism. The sand is white and powdery, the turquoise waters are crystal clear and perfect for snorkelling or gentle swimming.

A sumptuous Dominican lunch of fresh fish cooked in Coconut sauce (meat option also available) washed down with a Coco Loco cocktail is worth the journey alone! A fantastic day-out, not to be missed!

Samana is a unique city considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in the Dominican Republic whilst yet it remaining greatly undiscovered by many natives and even more so by foreign visitors. It's only recently that it has become known to tourists as unique place of interest with its tropical forests, coconut groves, hundreds of cosy alcove beaches with turquoise crystal clear waters, waterfalls, protected national parks and a picturesque protected bay.

Samana is also one of the breeding places of the humpback whale. These fantastic sea creatures come to Samana's coast in thousands all the way from January to March so if your Dominican Republic holiday happens to be during these months you might be lucky enough to spot one of them or even a group swimming and playing together.

This is the ultimate tour for extreme relaxation. From the Samana peninsula you will be heading towards the small key of Cayo Levantado. This is a little island just of Samana Bay and a small gem full of natural splendor and amazing beauty. The legend has it that the Bounty Hunters came in search of an idyllic location and found paradise here in Cayo Levantado. This is a magic destination for a day of pure escapism in the most virginal surroundings.

Let yourself go in this natural environment of fine white powdery beaches and clear turquoise waters giving you an amazing opportunity for fantastic snorkeling. Swim or sunbathe at your leisure in this paradise of blue, greens and the brightest of sunshine.

This tiny piece of paradise is also known as the Bacardi Island given to the resemblance of some of its palms trees to the ones shown in the famous Bacardi TV adverts. And an exceptional feature is that you can walk all around the island in just 15 minutes so you can only imagine how incredible small it really is, just as if it had been taken out of a fairy tale or a dream.

You'll be offered a delicious typical Dominican lunch specially prepared on the island and served on tables on open air for fantastic al fresco dining just by the sea.

With several hundreds of tourists coming every year and all dazzled by the paradisiacal beauty of this key, you'll agree with us this key is worth enjoying for more than a few minutes and you'll treasure the couple of hours you'll be spending here in paradise.
