Altos de Chavon
Altos de Chavon is a replica medieval European village perched high above the Chavon river. During the 1970s a project to construct a bridge over the river generated huge quantities of waste stone – this was used to build the village. Sites of interest include a huge Amphitheater, quaint St. Stanislaus church, a fascinating archaeological museum and several galleries exhibiting the work of local artists. The village is a 3 mile/15 minute taxi ride from the cruise port and there is an entry charge to the village.
A short distance to the east of La Romana lies public Bayahibe beach, a gorgeous white sand beach backed by swaying palm trees. Facilities include watersports, lounger hire, restrooms, restaurants and shops. The beach is a 12 mile/half-hour taxi ride from the cruise ship dock.
Saona Island is located a short distance from the mainland on the south-east tip of the Dominican Republic. The island is famous for its tropical greenery, picture-perfect beaches, and crystal clear waters rich with a rich variety of sea-life. It’s a popular tour excursion reached by boat from Bayahibe in less than an hour.
