We enjoyed the beach area. It's not sandy but never too crowded and we were able to rent chairs and an umbrella for the day. Also the nearby restaurants will serve food and drinks.

The natural beauty of the place is intact. What wonderful memories it brought back! However, our wonderful old beach house on the hill has been destroyed. It broke my heart.

Popular I suppose because of the limited number of beaches in the area, but it is a small beach, rocky, especially after the recent hurricane damages to the area.

We went here on a day trip from Santiago city. While the lush topography surrounding the beach is lovely, and it is the Caribbean so it's warm enough to swim there, it's not the most comfy strand to spend time at in Cuba. Super pebbly, though, with pieces of driftwood mixed up in the ground. We got stuck in a lightning storm, which was pretty to watch with the purple lightning beams and all, but not something you wan to experience while in the water swimming! There are a few bar places right inland from the beach. It's really "off the beaten path" feeling, the local infrastructure is not very developed to serve tourists like Playas del Este, Varadero, or the Cayos, but you do get much more chill vibes because of its relative anonymity on the Cuban beach scene. You might run into locals who want to serenade you with guitar music around campfires. A couple other foreign tourists were there when I went, but it's mostly local people chillin there otherwise. Bring bug repellant, otherwise your ankles will be swollen by the time you leave!…
