(4.1/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)

Consider a weekday visit to avoid crowds, and its worth bringing some shade along with you.

  • I was told that I was worth, instead remove even if only for a morning bustle of downtown and get here ... it was really refreshing. Relax by the sea and coconuts to drink at low prices.

  • With the T3 you bus directly from the Parque Central every 45 minutes to the beaches of the East. At its best, the section is Mar Azul (get off at the hotel Tropico). There then not stay there, where sun loungers and umbrellas are offered, but it slightly to the right. It's a quiet and beautiful. The hind leg dunes of nearby beach bars from there well are to reach n and secure the supply during a beach day, the you should be yourself. It patrolled beach police, which indicates an unattended to leave the things. We have felt more secure. Every 45 minutes a T3 returns until 18:00 bus to the city centre.

  • Approximately 3 km long beach which consists of the town of Tarara, Tropicoco, Atlantic. Very beautiful Tarara, uncrowded, the first stop of the bus (cost 5 CUC) which departs from parque central Havana, more touristy and rowdy Tropicoco
