We spent the last day of our trip to Cuba at these beaches, and they were very nice! Not super crowded, only about a 30 minute ride away from our hotel, and we were able to get some sun and rent a little paddle boat to take us out into the ocean. If you're in town for longer than a week or two, I would recommend getting out here for a few hours just to see what it has to offer!

Very close to the city. Only about 10 CUC and 20 minutes. Snorkeling was subpar, but the beach itself was lovely. There are a few places to get a bite to eat and a quick drink. A nice day after several spent in the city center.

When I was young, remember some beaches like this in my country, so, this visit take me to this long ago. Beautiful memories about it. Best cristal clear waters. The people so friendly and everyone in they're own business. You can get this beautiful beach taking the bus T3 in the central park stop. Tickets cost: 5 cuc (5 euros or 4.50 dollars) for round trip.

This area is rated the "Best Beaches of Cuba" - NOT EVEN CLOSE.
It is where the Havana's come to get away form the city on the week-ends. (typical of locals they throw trash anywhere)
If you go do it on a week day
Plan on 1/2 day to 1 day MAX. not worth 2 days
