This beach is about a 1/2 ride outside of Baracoa and a great place to spend the day. The reef is a bit of a swim off the shore, but there is some good snorkeling closer in just north of the last restaurant

take a room in Villa Maguana and enjoy the sea and sun in a quiet and exclusive location. Only 12 rooms in beautifully build wooden houses. The Villa survived the hurricane of 2012 quite well and the service and beautiful nature are untouched.
