06. Playa Ancón, Trinidad
Located on southern coast of Cuba, Playa Ancón has to be one of the best beaches in Cuba for its almost three miles of soft white sand, endless opportunities for water-sports such as scuba diving, snorkeling and its proximity to the cobbled, cute colonial town of Trinidad. One of the most important aspects of the beach is its serenity. It’s quieter than many comparatively more popular beaches. So, relaxing on Playa Ancón can be a very pleasing, refreshing and fulfilling experience.
05. Cayo Largo Beaches
If you want to experience some of the most beautiful coral reefs of Cuba, Cayo Largo beach is a perfect beach to be. Its wonderful underwater world will make you come back someday again. You should love the views of its spectacular unspoilt sands as well. Compared to other popular beaches, it is a remote beach as it is accessible via a small airport or a 6 hour long boat trip from the capital city. There is almost no big restaurant, shopping centres or any kind of commercialism, making it a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the serenity. The beach is perfect for nearly all kinds of travelers but if you are on a family vacation, make sure you don’t end up being in the nudist section of the island.
04. Guardalavaca Beach
If you are an avid diver, you can’t miss out visiting the Guardalavaca beach. Facing the great Atlantic Ocean, this gorgeous beach is known for its turquoise oceans, golden sands and crystal clear water. Being less than just 3 km long, it is one of the smallest beaches in Cuba. But it is a nature lover’s dream because of its various crustaceans, coral beds, and tropical fish such as barracuda, Spanish mackerel and swordfish. Thus, diving through the underwater caves at Gibara can be an experience of lifetime.
