Playas de Este, Havana

(4.1/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Escape the city and step onto the soft white sands of Playas de Este, a beach frequented by the locals of the area. Beach huts provide drinks, which you can grab in between swims in the ocean or strolls along the sand. Consider stopping in the nearby restaurant if you like fresh seafood accompanied by beach views. Consider a weekday visit to avoid crowds, and its worth bringing some shade along with you. Put Playas de Este into our Havana vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It was an awesome day for the beach. Beautiful and sunny. You can order drinks and will be taken to you. We had a perfect day  more »
  • Just like the rest of Cuba, Absolutely amazing. Very very quiet beach with not many people on it but also absolutely beautiful  more »
  • If you come to Cuba and want to have a beautiful experience with beautiful beaches, sunshine and beautiful weather I recommend without doubts Playas del Este, especially Santa María del Mar. By taxi it is between 20-30 minutes of the city depending on the municipality where you are staying. I recommend the part of the Mégano where there are sun loungers with parasols and bartender that gives you service cocktail bar. You can also lunch sitting on the beach.
