    Paradise Beach with sand bright and thin and turquoise water, undoubtedly one of the best beaches in Cuba, together with Playa Pilar is in the William fell, the village is very small, only has two hotels there including and houses family who rent rooms for tourists, there is plenty of night life, bars or restaurants, I didn't know was thus yme staying at a family home and I had to eat almost every night there, porq only had a bar on the beach that sold food but it closed to 20hs. Just recommend going because the beach is very amazing.
