Sheltered by green hills and coral reefs, the beach offers numerous water sports and activities. Snorkel or scuba dive near the wildlife-rich reefs, swim in the turquoise waters, play a round of beach volleyball, or rent a kayak to see the scenic surroundings from a different perspective.

  • About 50 km from Holguin city. Great sandy beach with several beach restaurants and bars. Music bars on the beach with loud music, but long beach where one can pull themselves away from the loud music.

Run home to Holguin before it gets too late/dark when there are many running home alcohol late in the afternoon/evening.
