Enjoy a full day trip to Isla Catalina to snorkel at one of the world´s most spectacular walls and reefs, bustling with an abundance of marine life and beautiful corals.
You arrive there by a 30-minute boat trip that leaves from the pier of Bayahibe. The island is unknown to many tour operators and tourists. The beach is completely free from the wind, creating the Caribbean Sea as a crystal clear mirror.
A chain of rocks forms a natural outcrop within the sea of about 500 meters.
On the surface, the sea has eroded these rocks to the point where a snorkeler can be in the water but under the rocks.
If you want to visit heaven on earth, you will find it right there.
Face the sun, enjoy tropical music in the background and just relax in this stunning Caribbean paradise.
