We took a taxi from our resort to here and the driver waited for us. We swam out and enjoyed the fish. 70 cucs for two of us and it was quite a drive - 45 mins.

We stopped at coral beach on our jeep safari tour but the winds were too strong so we couldn't swim or snorkel at all. There is no sand beach here but I imagine you just jump into the water from the edge, it looks deep to start off. Nice little tourist shops and restaurant, good bathrooms to change. There were...

Wonderful snorkeling.Wonderful reef and lots to see and reef drops down from 7 feet to 30 feet. I think you cannot snorkel here unless you have a local guide. Very very interesting place!

This beach is close Matanzas and also close Saturno Cave so you can visit both when you are here. For snorkelling is the place very nice, for swimming not that good, if you like more swimming in the sea or sunbathing, better is Varadero.

If I could rate it a zero than I would. Not sure how Coral Beach made it to the top rated attractions for Cuba. My husband and I just returned home from Cuba yesterday. We decided to check out Coral Beach on Feb. 13th. We were wanting to snorkel but we didn't want to join a guided tour that dictated... More

Coral beach is a very fine place to start with (scuba)diving or to snorkel. You reach the beach by taking the péage (paid highway). After you left the cabins for pay (CUC 2 per car) you drive to the split of the way and you drive right. After some kilometers you find the beach. Pay atention that there are to... More
