Where Are The Nicest Beaches?


The beaches of Cayo Largo del Sur, in central Cuba, have glistening turquoise water, fine white sand, and little else: secluded and peaceful, this spot is perfect for relaxation and swimming.

Varadero is busier, but just as lovely. Resorts and organized activities make Varadero an easy choice for boating, snorkeling, and tours.

For resort amenities and an uncrowded, lush feel, Guardalavaca is an excellent destination on the northern shore of the island. The warm, clear water is lined with thick green jungle.

Cayo Coco & Cayo Guillermo’s beaches have incredibly clear, light-blue water. The surrounding area has interesting wildlife, including a small population of flamingos. Visit the nearby El Bagá National Park to see mangroves and go bird watching.
