Beautiful beach with nice sand and clear blue water. There are parasols for free which you'll need for protection from the fierce sun! There's a beach bar and the waiter will come to you on the beach. There are two or three small hotels around...More

This is a beautiful beach with fine sand. The water is so clear that we can see though where fish swimming. It worths a visit if you are in the city of Cienfuegos.

The beach is fun, clean and you can visit with locals. The beach at the hotel is nice, however the public beach is less weedy. Water is warm and very appreciated on a hot day.

I was in Cuba several years ago and my favorite part was a lagoon with hundreds of amazing flamingos. I think it was near Rancho Luna Beach. Is my memory correct?

Is fishing allowed from the shore? What type of fish can one catch and what is the best bait. I would like to bring a fishing rod and reel and some equipment, is it allowed through customs?
