Saona Island, Dominican Republic

And, my first card showing a place in the Dominican it makes it country number 79....

The Saona Island (Isla Saona) is a tropical island located a short distance from the mainland on the south-east tip of the Dominican Republic. It is a government protected nature reserve and a popular destination for tourists from all over the Dominican Republic.
The Island is famous for the natural beauty of its beaches and has been used on many occasions by film-makers and advertisers looking for a stereotypical 'desert island' setting for their film or product. It is promoted amongst Europeans visitors as the setting for the famous Bounty Chocolate Bar adverts.
