The smallest of the islands off the shore of Bayahíbe, Catalinita sits in the Catuano Channel, popular for its crystal clear waters year round, and its abundance of marine life and coral reefs. Eagle rays, sharks, and sea turtles are just a handful of critters found in its shallow waters. Also part of Parque Nacional Cotubanamá, it can be combined on a dive or snorkel trip to Saona island.
