Cayo Levantado, Dominican Republic Cruise Port

An ultra-luxury cruise offers peaceful seclusion in beautiful surroundings, and for these reasons Cayo Levantado makes the perfect destination. Resting in Samana Bay's turquoise water, this tiny 1km-square island is home to beautiful beaches and swaying palm trees – the definitive island paradise.

Sightseeing in Cayo Levantado

The island of Cayo Levantado is a place for those who love to spend time relaxing on jaw-dropping beaches. With no formal sightseeing destinations on the island, visitors have all the time in the world to stroll on the beach, or take a dive in the sea. Alternatively, you could take a trip to the mainland around the Samana Peninsula for some unforgettable tourist destinations.

Cayo Levantado beach

Picture yourself strolling on the soft warm sand of a beautiful white beach, backed by lush green forest and swaying palms, while clear waves roll in to wash against your feet. This is the kind of place where you don't need to take a trip to enjoy yourself; after all, sometimes the simplest things bring the most joy. Much like a rainy weekend gives you the perfect reason to stop in and relax, what better excuse could you wish for than a sun-soaked tropical beach to stretch out and do very, very little indeed?

Los Haitises National Park

The nearby Samana Peninsula on the mainland is home to the beautiful local wildlife of Los Haitises. Here you may be able to take a guided tour of mangrove forests, bright blue waterfall pools and striking natural caves, once used by pirates in centuries past – and the native people long before that, where you may even see the cave drawings that they left behind. Sailing through waterways surrounded by small islands, visitors here will find parrots perching in the trees and terrapins swimming in the clear water. The mangrove roots make safe-havens for the native fish, while crabs crawl through the marshland and the skies teem with pelicans and frigate birds.

Humpback whales

Visit Cayo Levantado and the Samana Bay and you may even get a chance to see the area's humpback whales, which migrate here during the colder months of winter and early spring to mate. Whale watching boat tours may be available to give you a closer look at these remarkable creatures; what better way to make your trip to this beautiful part of the world truly unforgettable?

Shopping in Cayo Levantado

You'll be able to browse a range of small market stalls lining the beach on Cayo Levantado, where you'll find hand-made souvenirs and jewellery. Look out for cigars and rum for sale too, as well as hand-made bracelets and other crafts to make great mementos of your time on this paradise island.

Eating Out in Cayo Levantado

Nearby beach bars and restaurants make the perfect venues for a meal in beautiful surroundings; alternatively you could opt for a beach barbecue and enjoy some fresh seafood from the clear waters. Dine on local lobster or grilled fish, washed down with a cold beer, a pina colada, or a delicious cocktail served in a coconut.
