The laid-back vibe of the small island attracts visitors, who come for the pristine stretches of sand that are hailed as some of the best beaches in Cuba. Swim and snorkel in the clear, turquoise waters, or sunbathe on the warm white sand. In addition to a couple of resorts, the cay supports a few local restaurants that serve traditional Cuban cuisine. While on the island, try kitesurfing or scuba diving on the beach. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cayo Guillermo by using our Cayo Guillermo trip planner .
