It's true, Cuba has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and I have not visited all of them but I'm getting around to it by taking tours to Cuba. Talking about tours, I'm planning my 2022 groups now so make sure you head over to the tours page and reserve your spot. I have been waiting to get my passport back and for things to stabilize a little in Cuba to go back and I just got my new passport and I heard from my family that things are getting better there. So, going back to talking about the Cuban beaches, I'm listing below some of the most renown ones. Which one will be your favorite?
Ever since the United States restored its relationship with Cuba, American tourists have traveled to the tropical island nation in droves. From the crystal-clear waters to the vibrant culture, there is a lot to love in Cuba, and it doesn't hurt that the temperature rarely drops below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The combination of beautiful weather and warm waters makes Cuba a hot spot for beach lovers. The vast stretches of coastline offer plenty of sun and sand to enjoy; however, some places are better than others.
Playa Ancon is located on Cuba's southern shore, just seven miles south of the charming Spanish colonial town of Trinidad. Whether you love the beach or the culture of Cuba, Playa Ancon can undoubtedly satisfy you. Those with love for sea life can enjoy the lush coral rocks, where nature enthusiasts can spot local wildlife.
If you're looking for a change of scenery, travel over to Trinidad, where the historic architecture can transport you back in time to the 1800s when Spanish conquistadors roamed the city streets.
Varadero beach is one of Cuba's most famous beaches. With over 12 miles of coastline and dotted with lavish five-star resorts, it's easy to see why this beach is so famous. Although Varadero beach is more than just buffets and sun-tanning, there are plenty of natural wonders to take in as well, such as the nearby sea caves and breathtaking coral reefs.
Guardalavaca is a former cattle village turned tourist hot-spot. Beaches that were once reserved for farmers and their herds are now a popular sun-tanning location, lined with crystal clear waters and resort property. After a day of tanning and wading into the warm Cuban waters, you can head on over to the seaside market, where you can find a wide variety of Cuban goods, from authentic cigars to handbags.
Playa Sirena might be your beach of choice if you like to travel off the beaten path. Located on a remote island named Cayo Largo, Playa Sirena offers a refreshing respite from the constant luxuries of resorts. Getting to Playa Sirena can be a bit of a trek; however, you'll understand it was well worth the effort once you get there. One of the many attractions at Playa Sirena is the dolphin park, where visitors can swim alongside these intelligent sea creatures. The waters off of Playa Sirena are also incredibly calm, and since there are no hotels nearby, there are fewer crowds, meaning you can enjoy the shoreside in near-complete seclusion.
Make sure to head over the Tours tab and book your 2022 group adventure to Cuba now! I can't wait to take you to my homeland and provide the much-needed support to my Cuban people.
