Among its features are protected islands that serve as nesting sites for pelicans and frigate birds, caves with pre-Columbian pictographs and petroglyphs, and mangrove-lined river tributaries. In the winter, many whales calve in the bay.
Adjoining the bay is Los Haitises National Park, which is popular with national and international ecotourist visitors.
