Surrounded by picturesque sugar cane fields and overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, this destination has something to offer every traveller. Visit the offshore island of Isla Saona on a catamaran cruise to spend the day soaking up the sun on your very own private island with white-sand beaches and excellent snorkelling conditions. La Romana is also one of the Caribbean’s top golfing destinations, with three championship courses at the famous Casa de Campo resort complex: Teeth of the Dog, The links and Dye Fore. These world-class greens were designed by legendary golf architect Pete Dye and are a favourite among celebrities!
