Cayo Levantado is a small island barely 2.4 km in circumference located in the Bay of Samana. Legend tells the treasure hunters have come to this island long ago. The sand is powdery white and the sea turquoise blue water, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We had the chance to do some snorkeling, and since there are several clumps of coral, you'll find colorful marine life. Cayo Levantado is also known as Bacardi Island because some palm trees resemble those of the advertising of Bacardi.

The island is divided into two sectors, the public beach (about a quarter of the island) with its services like snack bars, shops, bathrooms, souvenir photos, messages on the beach. etc.. and the private sector of the Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado. Please note that due to the popularity of Cayo Levantado, hundreds of tourist venture to the island each day, including a fewcruise ships.

We explored the private sector of Cayo Levantado, to visit the Luxury Bahia Principe hotel and also the public sector during the tour of the « Los Haitises » park. Excursionists from the public beach cannot enter the private areas of the hotel Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado. The island has two docks, one for the public sector and the other, a few meters away, for hotel guests.

This Luxury Bahia Principe has no "Pueblo" annexed to the hotel, but guests can visit the Pueblo Principe in the village of Samana, located across from the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa.
