Almost like ash, soft and grey. Very Nice! Most spot are clean from any coral, debris, rocks. The part of the beach we stayed was kept very clean. Cubans take care of their beaches!

White sand was amazing. Ocean clear and sparkling. Close to hotel and always a seat available. Warning flags for tides and currents.

Looks good! water cold compared to say Barbados, lots of shells on beach and had to get out of sea one day due to jelly fish, but nice white sand if narrow where we were.
