Playa Pilar, Cayo Guillermo

4.5
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Cayo Guillermo
Traverse an elevated walkway as it guides you across shoreline grasses to Playa Pilar. Dense, powdery sands make this beach easy to walk along. Bring along your snorkel gear and explore the bay, or visit the island and its surrounding reef. The beach features a restaurant and bar where you can take in the tropical view. Consider bringing a beach umbrella, as there is limited natural shade, although you can rent beach chairs or take advantage of a few shaded shelters on the sand.

  • Nice beach only accessible by bus or taxi. Bus runs almost from each hotel on Cayo Coco, and costing 5 CUC per person, including return tickets. In my opinion, is a beach just as beautiful as the most valid in the area and in Cuba. After the second I probably didn't. If you want to take a trip, but don't expect a miracle, just gorgeous pure white beach as most of Cuba.

  • I expected to see a beautiful beach but this was not the case, it looks more like what the we see on the photos but with time maybe they will succeed to put it back in good condition.
