This area is virtually untouched by tourism which makes it that much more spectacular. There are National Parks and relatively vacant beach areas that can be explored here, particularly if you have your own transportation. More info about Barahona ...
This beautiful island boasts the south coast's best coral reef, where fish are so tame from the many snorkelers and divers who visit here, that they eat right out of your hands.
Altos de Chavón
Altos de Chavón is the site of a recreated 16th-century Mediterranean village, with amphitheatre (where famous artists such as Julio Iglesias have performed), restaurants, shopping and artisan's village. The site overlooks the Rio Chavón.
From Bayahibe you can take a motorboat to the beautiful Saona Island, in the National Park of the East, which is a 25 by 5 km island with white sand beaches where you can sunbathe, swim in the natural swimming pool, and enjoy a seafood lunch & refreshing drinks. Many take advantage of the great snorkeling off this island, which can sometimes include peeks of manatees and bottlenose dolphins.
