Known as one of the most beautiful sites in Punta Cana, the island of Catalina is a great place for families to visit during their stay in the Dominican Republic. The island itself is completely uninhabited and can only be reached by boat, which means travelers who visit will have access to a Caribbean paradise that is protected from everyday crowds who might ruin its natural beauty. After a comfortable bus ride to the coast, tourists can get on board designated boats that will take them straight to the island where they will find themselves surrounded by turquoise waters and white sand beaches lined with palm trees. The island is a great place for snorkeling and is home to many species of tropical fish and coral. It is also surrounded by a diverse ecosystem, making it popular among divers who enjoy exploring the surrounding reef, as well as fisherman who go there to catch different types of fish and other sea creatures. Kids visiting Catalina with their parents will enjoy the many activities going on at the island, and parents can even relax on lounge chairs while little ones play in the water or on the sand.
