More than half of the islet's 42 square kilometers (27 square miles) is covered by forests inhabited by varied fauna, including whitetail deer, zebras and antelopes.
Crystal-clear waters, fine sand and a coastline of brownish rocks are singular attractions, giving the islet's 12 beaches different shades of color that create a show that is exclusive to the region.
Based on a Natural Park concept, Cayo Saetia's pristine nature has remained intact and away from the human invasion, so the islet's original flora and fauna have been preserved to date.
Visitors can move around the islet, and can find animals such as wild boars, buffaloes, ostriches, peacocks, zebras, Cuban trogons (tocororo), antelopes, hutias and wild bulls.
Add to this that dozens of species of birds have chosen that area of the Cuban archipelago to live, and migratory birds nest there in winter.
Cayo Saetia also has options for diving enthusiasts, including a coral reef near the islet.
