CUBA BEACH VACATION
White sand, palm trees, and crystal clear water — many of Cuba’s beaches are so picture- perfect that they border on the surreal. This is due in part to the absence of pollution, one plus side of the islands’ lack of development. Go snorkeling at some of the remote gems, and book a stay near a perennial hotspot.
Windsurfing is a popular activity on Cayo Guillermo and Playa Santa Lucía. Varadero attracts a huge number of tourists, so it has very welldeveloped resources for visitors. María La Gorda has underwater caves where visitors can go on interesting scuba diving missions. The beach of the Bay of Pigs also has good snorkeling conditions.
