  • We went by bus to the beach of Havana from. This is relatively straightforward, the bus runs from the central square of at least once per hour and stops at several points along the beach. Nevertheless it is worth to run anything on the beach, there are beautiful, quiet corners - although in the off-season anyway, not much is going on. The water is clean and fairly flat, pleasant for bathing. Except a coconut vendor there was no pushy Cubans who wanted to withdraw money the tourists. Trash was there of course, unfortunately on every beach. Still an enjoyable outing.
