Playas de Este, Havana
(4.1/5 based on 1,500+ 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.
