A stunning beach where you can see sea stars in the water without having to snorkle. There are many sun beds along the beach that you can use free of charge. I found the facilities better here than at Cayo Jutias as there were several restaurants and bars plus toilets to use. I came with Cubantur so my luch was... More

If you don't get to stay here, at least visit for the day, walk along the beach to find your own deserted desert island and swim naked in the sea.

We were supposed to stay here two nights, but after one day we decided to leave early. Location: this island is remote. To get there you need to drive the worst road in cuba. No small towns close to it to visit if weather not good enough for sunbathing. You pay for secure parking. But when we got our car... More

Tiny tropical island with white beach and few tourists. Accessible only by boat, the island has some accomodations available (book early), a couple of restaurants and bars, diving center and some shops. Very small and not overly expensive. As a day trip from Vinales, it is a nice place to relax

This is a beautifull island with nice white beaches and bungalows on the beach. Especially when you walk all the way to the east side of the island you have almost a private white beach. Great. It's a bit a shame that all theses day tourist come every day and filling up the area. The food in the restaurants is... More

I went to Cayo Levisa on a day trip from Vinales. The best part was the drive from Vinales through the countryside. Then we took the ferry. The landscape it's amazing. The island it's a paradise but the full day can be boring if you don't do snorkelling. The bar it's dead, no music, no atmosphere. The food isn't great.... More

I encourage a boycott of Cayo Levisa. It is a tourist only island. Seriously, no Cubans allowed. The beach is lovely, but head to Cayo Jutias instead.

Nice for a day trip. You can also catch a snorkelling or diving trip from here. Boat trip takes a couple of hours and takes you out to the reef. Worth using their flippers but recommend taking your own goggles and pipe as quality of loan ones us not that good.

A small eco-island, near Vinales, that you can reach with a small boat, usually three times a day. Just 55 rooms, a restaurant, and a long, white sands beach. We stayed in a junior suite, nice and clean, quiet, aircon working well, even if a bit noisy. Restaurantok during week, not really during weekends. Very friendly staff

This island is definitely worth a day trip. White sand beach, clear blue sea, great mangrove full of wildlife. Very relaxing experience far away from the crowds. Worth walking to the far east beach of the island, finding your way through the mangrove. 1hr round trip for a few minutes as Robinson Crusoe for a few . The restaurant is... More
