Playas de Este, Havana

(4.1/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • Way from Havana to Varadero are a series of beaches all beautiful to swim and enjoy the Sun.

  • Playas de Este is one of the beautiful beaches of cuba which is located a few kilometers from Havana easily accessible by public transport. To see and enjoy

  • Access is relatively easy, in the Plaza Central bus every 40 minutes it takes about half an hour to reach the beaches. Recommend Santa Maria del Mar, Las terrazas. However the beach does not correspond to a Caribbean dream. Windy, rough sea, few food options.
