Catalina Island (Isla Catalina), Dominican Republic overview

The official name of this Dominican Republic island is Isla Catalina. The island is only 9.6 square kilometers, but packs a big entertainment punch nonetheless. Don't get the wrong idea, though--this is a protected ecological area, and for good reason. The pristine sand dunes, mangrove swamps, and coral stone formations are a splendid rarity in the Caribbean.

Stay on the ship. This is an uninhabited island and the ship docks right off shore of this island. You take a tender boat to the beach and that is where you stay. We were afraid to get in the water due to warnings of jellyfish.
