This tropical island is located in the Caribbean Sea at the southeastern tip of the Dominican Republic. The place is famous for its beauty and beaches. The island, together with the adjacent mainland, is a protected nature reserve. It is located just a short distance from the mainland in the most popular tourist area of Punta Cana and is therefore a popular destination for tourists.

Boat to the island

The only way to get to the island is about an hour's boat ride from the town of Bayahibe. On the way along the coast, it is possible to enjoy the local vegetation and buildings. The road also leads around the famous blue lagoon.

Swimming in the turquoise sea

Although a lot of boats go to the island every day, you can find empty beaches with flames overhead. It's exactly like the ads for an exotic Caribbean vacation.
