Such a shame to see a reef with so many dead corals... It was fun to swin with fish around us, but the only reason they were there, was because our "guide" had a bottle of water mixed with bread, he poured from... Not much to see on the reef, unfortunately,,

Amazing, probably the most beautiful reef I've ever seen, would recommend it 100%. If you like the nature Varadero is the place to go but dont expect good services at all, they dont have any idea of what services are

Beautiful location for both Scuba and snorkeling.... It is not often that two people could do both things in the same place and watch each other... With a max depth of 12 m and lots of channels and coral heads if your partner can't scuba... They can actually swim above and Go-pro you down below with your dive master... Lots... More

In my opinion this was amazing. I have to confess that this was my first time snorkelling at coral reef so I have nothing I can really compare it to. It may not be a colourful as ones in other areas of the world but it is a must stop when in varadero.

A very pleasant surprise. Turned up at this place not knowing what to expect. Basic buildings by the waters edge but go in the water and its teeming with wonderful fish! They even took photos of us ( for a price) and supplied a disc as we left.....

This was a lovely snorkeling session but the current was very strong and I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who is not a strong swimmer.

My wife and I booked a tour through our travel agency for snorkeling and the Saturno Cave and found the snorkeling was pretty good, with a decent variety of fish and some interesting corals. Being on the tour we were limited in time and where we could go so I'm sure we would have enjoyed it more if we went... More

Loved this! First time snorkelling and we would do it again. very safe and lots to see. Be warned you spend a lot of time just wading in one area for a bit while the guide takes pictures of you with the fish...worth the 10CUP!

We spent about an hour snorkeling at Coral Beach with the Barracuda snorkeling/diving company. Some of the coral is dead already, though there is lots of fish! One of the girls in our tour brought bread and attracted so many fishes! Maybe saw around 7-10 species of fish. I even saw tiny jellyfish :)
