When we plan vacations, we want to get away from the routine and noise of everyday life. Punta Cana has many wonderful places to offer, beyond its exotic and dazzling beaches. You can also enjoy recreation, rest, and pleasure in the nearby islands.

Catalina Island, also known as Ikiita Island or Toeya by the local Indians, has two beautiful beaches that seem to be taken from a postcard or a movie. You can experience a moment that seems to stop time, surrounded by natural scenery. The island is home to a large natural park dedicated to the preservation of wildlife, making it a popular destination for visitors. Upon arrival, you will feel disconnected from the world and the hustle and bustle of city life.

Catalina Island is also a popular destination for scuba divers and snorkelers. Despite its mostly unspoiled coastline, the island has cliffs on one side with populated coral reefs and drop-offs that are over 100 meters deep.

The island is uninhabited, and visits are only allowed on day trips. You must bring everything you need with you, as it is a protected area. The journey to the island is a pleasant one, taking about 30 minutes by boat. Catalina Island is located just 2.4 kilometers off the east coast of the Dominican Republic, near Saona Island.

On your guided tour, you will enjoy the island's natural areas, such as the Wall and the Aquarium. You will also get to see the Quedagh Merchant, a 17th-century pirate ship that sank off the coast of Catalina Island.

Catalina Island is a beautiful and unspoiled place that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. Whether you want to relax on the beach, go snorkeling or scuba diving, or explore the island's natural beauty, Catalina Island has something to offer everyone
