Escape the city and step onto the soft white sands of Playas de Este, a beach frequented by the locals of the area. Beach huts provide drinks, which you can grab in between swims in the ocean or strolls along the sand. Consider stopping in the nearby restaurant if you like fresh seafood accompanied by beach views. Consider a weekday visit to avoid crowds, and its worth bringing some shade along with you.

Playas de Este reviews
Definitely go to this beach if you have a stay in cuba. You just take a local bus.. takes about twenty minutes. There is a cafe restaurant at te entrance and there is also a little bottle shop... more »
To get to the beach the best and cheapest way is by bus from Parque de Central in Havanna. Cost is 5CUC and that is for both ways so don't loose your ticket. Best beach is at the end of the bus trip. more »
The ocean is warm and beautiful, full of little fish, the beach is long and sandy, but spoiled with cigarett buts and bear cans that litter even the ocean. You can still enjoy there and bring nice memories home.
Nice beaches. Water was warm. Whitish sands. Some parts were less crowded than others.
