Cayo Saetia Island, Holguin
(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
An idyllic, uninhabited 42 m sq (137 ft sq) island sitting a top a coral reef, Cayo Saetia Island offers a quirky paradise where zebras, parrots and ostriches live side by side. The cay used to be the private holiday home to Fidel Castro until 1994, when it became open to the public. Take a dip along crystal shores before a jeep tour takes you around the island to visit African safari animals that roam free here. Grab a relaxing, tasty lunch at the islands resort, under the shade of mangroves with picturesque views. Put Cayo Saetia Island into our Holguin travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This place, a little difficult to access (especially in wet weather!) does not of great interest, if not a place of rest in nature, away from the pollution and the bustle of the city.

  • The most beautiful "uninhabited" island. Big shells km 1 restaurant you can find. Beautiful, clean plaza ... my favorite I was 2 times.

  • To get to Cayo Saetia on your own you have to pay 10 CUCs person... The beach is beautiful: once leaves the bridge back (where you ask for the passports), traverses a field with animals of all kinds: zebras, Gazelles, ostriches, etc. Once in the bar/restaurant he is payment, invite you to a cup of rum and your Kola and have hammocks service to the beach. It is a very nice place that is worth a visit if you like the beach.
