Amazing beach with white sand and the most beautiful colour of water. We swam for hours. You can see fish in the waves and we swam at night--it is safe. One of the best beach vacation spots on earth. Go there quickly before bigger hotels come to Cuba.

The water is calm,... More

Loved the... More

Charming beaches with clear water and white sand ..Some of the all inclusive resorts however may not be worth it..best you dine out . If arriving in Havana tho it's a 5 hour drive to get to Varedero

On our first day the water was really flat and majestic because there were no waves. It really looked like paradise.

Can't say more then that the beaches are just really good. Some beaches are public and you will find locals there, you can also decide to use beaches that are part of a resort, though not every resort may offer them for people outside the resorts or will charge a fee for the chairs and parasol. Though the beaches may... More
