  • 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.
