We visited this beach as a ending to our catamaran tour (which we did twice). We stopped for an hour each time - there was a bar, washrooms and a place to get ice cream. the water was very clear, snorkeled from shore, saw several starfish. Beautiful place.

Nuff said. Beautiful beach. Very sandy, blue and shallow. Truly worthy of being rated the best in Cuba.

Fantastic beach with beautiful water, but a little bit over crowded, especially when the catamarans come to the beach.

We took the tour bus from Sol Cayo Coco, not knowing what awaited us...After about an hour, everyone got of the bus so we did as well. What we saw walking along the boardwalk was simply breathtaking. My eyes must have been the size of toonies...lol The water was azure blue's and green's and the sand was so fine and... More
