Cayo Levantado, is a little island in Samana Bay . The Bounty Hunters came in search of Paradise, and found it on Cayo Levantado. This jewel of a tiny island lies just off the Samaná Peninsula and is the perfect destination for a day of pure escapism. The sand is white and powdery, the turquoise waters are crystal clear and perfect for snorkeling or gentle swimming. A typical Dominican lunch (included) is prepared on the island and served at tables set up in the open air for tourists to take full advantage of the sun and sea. This Island is also called the Bacardi Island because some palm trees look like the ones in the Bacardi advertising spots. It is a quite beautiful island with several hundred tourists coming every day. Tourists can walk through the island in only 15 minutes.
