You can walk for miles, very clean & very little litter. No sea weeds & you can see little fish, they love bananas! No locals trying to sell you stuff. Very safe no matter what time of the day or night.

The best was white sand and the water was warm and swim able. The one end where the hotels begin was quiet and I did not see any vendors. There was a beach volleyball tournament on the beach during our stay which was great to...More

Beautiful sandy beach. Azure blue sea. The waters were very calm and quiet. You can walk out quite a long way since it is so shallow.

Of all the beaches I have visited in the continent and the Caribbean, this is the second best beach. Cayó Santa María would be my first option.

Great beach with clean, white sand and shallow warm water. An idyllic Carribbean holiday location. Just watch out for dodgy locals trying to sell you second grade or knocked-off cigars!

Simply put most beautiful beach I've ever seen! Best part of my trip. I thought the beaches in Maui were amazing but Varadero is absolutely gorgeous

Hi, looking some advice on which area of Varadero Beach is nicest to stay at? Any views on Tuxpan hotel and area? Also, I've heard the wifi is very poor, my teenagers won't be happy with this, is there wifi in the hotels and is it only available in certain areas?

Well the beach was GORGEOUS, white sand, not grassy or rocky, and the water is crystal clear - blue and beautiful. Be careful which hotel you pick. Really check the reviews. I stayed at the Barcelo Solymar, and it was... More

Can I visit Varadero Beach by going to an All Inclusive Hotel, though not staying there? Meaning, do I have to stay at the hotel to visit the beach from their grounds?

Yes you must have the band on your wrist that each hotel gives out when you arrive. This proves that you are staying at the hotel. Some of the hotels are affiliated with others so before you book check with the travel agent.
What area can we go on the beach that has food/drinks and beach chairs? We plan on spending the day from Havana. Any recommendatiosn for car service would be grealty appreciated as well?

I'm afraid there isn't any beach bars or chairs unless you go all inclusive at one of the exclusive beach hotels. You can access the beach from any street along the Varadero high street. There are plenty of bars on the high... More
