An absolutely spectacular strip of almost secluded beach. One of the best that Cuba has to offer. If your travels take you anywhere near this place you have to come and see where Hemingway used to fish.

Accesible from any hotel in Cayo Coco or Cayo Guillermo for only $5.00 on a hop on hop off bus. Pristine clear waters and white sands are the best it have to offer. Restaurant with very affordable local food and cold beer

We recently cycled from the Iberostar Daiquiri to PP & took us 30mins.You could easily walk it or if the Melia has bikes,cycle there like we did. It is a nice beach but nothing to rave about though.
