Cayo Santa María
Notable among the beaches of Cuba are that of Cayo Santa María, in the province of Villa Clara, they have also become a classic within the tourist proposals of the country and it is not for less. Its very white sand, the freshness of its sea and the exclusivity of being separated from everything, make the visit to this Cayo, like others, a dream proposal. Perfect for those who like to get a good tan!
This beach located north of the province of Camagüey has about 21 km of white sand. In addition to the beauty of this place, its greatest exclusivity lies in the possibility of being in contact with Cuban nature. Its coral reefs are a unique place for those who like diving. On this shore of the sea we can also frequently find a great variety of bird species, among which the colorful flamingos stand out.
This is the classic beach among all the ones in Cuba. Well known worldwide and cataloged on many occasions among the best on the planet, is located in the Hicacos Peninsula, north of Matanzas.
This natural paradise has around 20 kilometers of access to the sea guaranteed by a very fine white sand and an incredibly clear water. In addition, to all this the tourist proposals of the zone are added, that include very interesting nocturnal options and practice of aquatic sports.
Like many of the keys that make up the archipelago of Cuba, Guillermo retains the natural beauty of being a virgin beach site. His landscapes are “film”, it is not uncommon then that the American writer Ernest Hemingway has also preferred this piece of Cuba, specifically El Pilar beach. In addition, Cayo Guillermo, located in the province of Ciego de Ávila, is a good place for lovers of fishing, and above all, to disconnect from the world.
Another ideal place to disconnect and immerse yourself in a unique natural environment. The walks along the coast, water sports and diving are some of the activities that can complement your day. However, you may prefer to stay all day in a sun lounger and listening to the sound of the waves and relax. The tranquility that this piece of sea transmits may be the place you are looking for to recover after a time of stress. Cayo Coco is also found in Ciego de Ávila.
To the north of the province of Holguín we find Guardalavaca, another classic not to get lost among the beaches of Cuba. After knowing the beautiful “city of parks”, what better way to end the day than by the sea? The proposal becomes almost irrechazable if we know the natural values of Guardalavaca, a paradise on earth that combines this exclusive beach with the most native Cuban landscapes.
Its proximity to the Villa de Trinidad, one of the most magical cities in the country, endows this piece of sea with a greater charm. Its landscape does not escape from giving us white sand and water with the most surprising blue tones. The perfect proposal would be a few days in Trinidad and, in addition to enjoying the charms of the recently proclaimed “Craft City” of the world, take a bicycle with the final destination to see the sunset in Ancon.
