When you go to a beach you want it clean, and it is. Beautiful white sandy beach. You can watch the locals work at their jobs.

Hammocks, golden sand, relaxation. Just true beauty. There are boats you can take out from the hotels, and you can go snorkelling on the reefs!

Lovely beach. Security guards on site 24/7 and lifeguards through the day. Lots of shaded hammocks and sun beds. Sea warm and shallow - great for swimming

Locals told me this beach was the favourite spot to go to. It is a bit daunting to reach if you don't like being hounded by hawkers. You can snorkel but there are boats around so be careful.

Too die for, gorgeous white sand, lovely blue sea and never too busy. Realy nice Cuban bands will have play music and sing while you sit back and relax and have a monitoring.

The beaches are so relaxing and calming. The water is great and the fact that you don't have to walk to far to get to anywhere is also an easy going atmosphere. I love the beach so that is one of the first things I ask about. Guardalvaca Beach is one of my favorites.

We were only there for a short time on a bus trip to the market nearby. We had a soft drink and enjoyed the view.
