When visiting Cayo Coco this is a place one must go and visit. The beach is amazing. Clear, calm water and white sand. It will cost you 5 CUC by double decker bus (to and from). Bring money as this is not part of the all inclusive. You have to pay 2 cuc for the chair. There is a restaurant... More

Nice Sand, calm water, enjoyed my time there and the trip with the double decker was fun, bring money, 2 CUC per chair, and drinks. I swam and went to the left peak for some snorkeling which was average. Also there are washrooms but no showers, so bring some fresh water with you to at least wash your face from... More

I've been to quite a few islands, they start to look the same after a while. However, this beach is gorgeous. Sand is white and very fine, water is warm (too warm but that's cause it's so damn hot in Cuba!). We took the 9:00 bus and it took just over an hour and a half to get there (from... More

This is the most beautiful beach I have seen. It is beautifully quiet and peaceful with soft white sand and crystal clear water. There is a cute little bar on the beach that serves mojitos and daiquiris, for me it was heaven on earth. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and there were not many people there. According to another... More
