Piece of paradise on earth

A beautiful island which you can reach only by catamaran. It has a restaurant, which has a poor but good offer. beautiful beach and nature. Only a tourist place, but very nice.

THE best day trip of all if you like to drink, dance, swim and eat! We have done this trip on each one of our visits to Cuba and we will keep on doing them. It's the best day ever!

Can't describe how disgusted overall. Boat was fun. Everyone just got drunk. Couldn't wait to get off it when I realized the crew was taking turns bringing drunk women to the washroom and having sex...one after another. Afterwords they would wash their hands in the drink sink and start serving drinks. Felt surrounded by disease.

This private island is the lunch stop for the catamaran day trip. It has a gorgeous beach that I wish we have time to enjoy longer. There was a great band playing during our buffet style lunch, which consisted of lobster, shrimp, and various meat and vegetable dishes. It was very good.

We had a catamaran excursion that took us to this beach and it was gorgeous. They had the best pina coladas and the colour of the beach was just amazing. Because we paid for a catamaran excursion, the food on the beach was all free and delicious. We only spent about an hour and a half at this beach however... More

Just returned from Varadero. Had a great time. Only souvenir we bought was the CD on the Seafari Cayo Blanco as we loved the Tunes - disappointed to get home and find the CD is Blank!!!!! 25 CUC down the drain.... Oh Well - buyer beware. Check CD before you paid ...

We went here on a catamaran stop. Beach was nice but most of the water had been damaged due to hurricane matthew. There was a weird fishy smell and not your average beach fish smell. The sand at the shore was also dirty with seaweed and branches but again, we understood it could've been because of the hurricane a couple... More

Updated since my last trip! Buffet lunch is amazing, had the best food I have had in a while. View is peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. The sand is unbelievably soft, and the beachfront stunning. A bit "shelly", but it's a beach so you should expect this. I love Cayo Blanco, always make a point to get here on each trip!

We travelled here with Crucero del Sol: Catamaran & Dolphins. We visited the dolphins first then went to the island for lunch. It was a great day out the guys on the Catamaran are a great bunch, the food on the island looked great but the best bits "Lobster" were a bit over done. Plenty there though and free bar... More
