Playa Blanca Beach, Cayo Largo

2.2
#5 of 6 in Outdoors in Cayo Largo
Stroll, relax, and bathe in the sun on Playa Blanca Beach. The waves at this temperamental spot can get heavy--fun for some, but not ideal for swimmers. Lifeguards patrol the beach, and flags warn of the conditions in the water. Beach umbrellas and sun loungers are available to rent, and you can refuel at the nearby snack bars and restaurants.

Where to stay in Cayo Largo

Most accommodations on Cayo Largo sit on the south coast, not far from the beach. These consist of resorts, hotels, and private villas--expect a swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, and complimentary breakfast. If you're after a slightly different scene, you can stay at a bed and breakfast at the center of the island, or an eco-lodge in the north.
