Canto de la Playa
is a paradise beach in the very south of Saona island, Dominican Republic
. Since the distance from Punta Cana and from La Romana is maximal, only limited number of tours get here. So there are just a few people here. There is some tourist infrastructure in the west end of the beach, so the main crowd is here. But if you walk to the left, you will find an endless wild beach being almost as beautiful and completely without tourists. Shore and seabed: sand.  Find hotels in Canto de la Playa
There are no hotels near the beach of Canto de la Playa. Several guesthouses (from US$60) can be found on Mano Juan beach, located to the west. It takes a long time to walk there, but it's quite possible anyway. Find hotels in Canto de la Playa

When to go 
Feel free to relax in Dominicana any time of year. The sea is warmest in summer, but the heat is the most intense as well. And there is also a hurricane season from June to October. On the other side, the winter weather is more comfortable, but seawater at the northern coast is too cold that time.
