Varadero is the perfect beach. Fine white sand, gentle waves, blue blue waters, lots of activity if desired and lots of quiet spots too. This is the 'beach' strip of Cuba and... read more

Varadero is the perfect beach. Fine white sand, gentle waves, blue blue waters, lots of activity if desired and lots of quiet spots too. This is the 'beach' strip of Cuba and its fantastic!

Excellent outing in Matanza, half day trip, was free traveling with Hola Sun. The cave was a little bit of work as we were told that we would be going down 750 meters but it did not feel like it. We went to the city of Matanza after the caves, got off the bus and wandered around the park and... More

Clean, clean, clean. No rocks, seaweed or debris of any kind most times. When the wind picks up, of course seaweed and rocks are pushed ashore. Vendors never moved beyond the shorelines, as I believe it borders on illegal for them to do so!? Security was always present as were lifeguards. Much safer than any beach I've been to in... More

me and my husband stayed at iberostar vardero for 5 nights, we had an amazing time. The beach is clean and is a long stretch of white sand. The water is clear turquoise and picturesque.

Nice beach, beautiful waters, nice to stay at the end away from the main hotels. White sands, good for a break from the rest of Cuba.

The waters were a little rough the first few days, as a storm had passed by just prior to our arrival, but the beach was amazing. We had a lot of fun 'wave jumping" and body surfing. Down the beach were Kite Surfers, and a group of Sky diver's landed down the other way. The white sand and warm water,... More

Lovely beach with great access to the warm sea. Get's a bit rough when the weather is windy so need to exercise caution

Such a brilliant beach - but the poor cubans are all over your money - Walk far down the beach and relax

This really is a great beach. Miles of beautiful white sand and aqua blue water. If the water is calm you can be shoulder deep and still see your toes as clear as in a pool. Really is fantastic

And watch out for the beach sellers who are constantly trying to sell you something - don't go here if you want to relax and feel safe.
