Beautiful water, clean and quiet. Had no intention of visiting the beaches but the taxi driver insisted and it was a good call.

The most beautiful horizon...
Sep 2019 • Solo
This beach is breathtaking to say the least. It is easily accessible from the T3 bus in Parque Central for 5-6 CUC round trip. Get off at the last stop, but go to the bus stop by 3PM or it may be difficult to get back. The buses fill up quickly. You can snag a cab for about 15-20 CUC back to Parque Central. I like to find another solo stranger and split the cab fare. Booze is cheap and they serve food on the sand. They also have a masseuse and kayak rentals. Keep in mind, running around topless is permitted. No public restrooms on the beach though, but there is one in the restaurant that is kind of gross. Nowhere to shower after being in the water (which I can’t stress enough to do). Rinse off with bottled water. Is it worth it? Absolutely!! I have never seen a more beautiful horizon in my life!

For 1 peso we caught the local bus from the old town near the ferry terminal to the gorgeous beach. You can relax on sun loungers for 3CUC each and be served fresh fish from a local resturaunt. The water is super calm and crystal clear. Deffinatly a hiden gem of Havana.

Imagine Serenity: 20 min from Havana
Feb 2020
Gorgeous blue/green water and immaculate clean white sand.... for 6CUC we got chaises and an umbrella... plus, while not stupid... the umbrella guy "supervised" our belongings when we went swimming...
Quiet..no blasting music and we saw people ordering pineapple w rum drinks and food ... So easy to take a taxi- maybe 50CUC roundtrip. Santa Maria is a beach that is part of Playa de Este.

Absolutely beautiful beach
Sep 2019 • Solo
Such a lovely beach in Havana. It's about 40 minutes drive from old havana. I went there during the week and was surprised to see it so filled with so many people. It seems to be very popular.
There are beach chairs for rent and restaurants close by.
A definite must visit

Beautiful beach; close to Old Havana
Sep 2019
The water was stunning and the food was delicious! Santa Maria del Mar is about 15 minutes from Old Havana - a quick getaway from the city. The beach was not crowded. We got two chairs and an umbrella for $6 cuc. The food was some of the best meals we eat. We ordered the roasted fish.
