Cayo Jutias, Minas de Matahambre

#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Pinar del Rio Province
Relax on the pristine beaches of Cayo Jutias, a 7 km (4.3 mi) stretch of untouched white sand, clear azure waters, and lush mangrove forest. More tranquil and less crowded than other spots in the region, the beach affords peace and quiet. In spite of a lack of facilities, the seafood restaurant along the waterfront should have you covered if hunger strikes. A dive center and other boat tours operate nearby for those who want some adventure.

  • This beach is beautiful and natural, and because there is no accommodation also very quiet with day visitors. The bar has loud music but you can just continue and find beautiful quiet corners. The sand is incredibly fine and very bright. I had been looking closely for something on my trip. The 2-hour drive from Viñales are definitely worth it.

  • The road to reach the beach is really in bad shape, but the beach and sea are very beautiful. better go with organised trips. If like us, you have a rental car check that you have comprehensive insurance

  • The road to the Cayo Jutías was the most adventurous road, we found in Cuba. The directions make sure something more time schedule for! The beach itself is beautiful - white sand, little operation and it is worth not only to direct orbit of the houses (restaurant, toilets,...) is absolutely to stay and something to look around. = Very nice even for non-swimmers)

  • Really nice beach although a bit hard to reach since the road that gets there is full of holes. There is a bar which serves food at the beach, but I recommend contacting the local fishers. We got a nice lunch with fresh lobster for just 10 CUC.
  • Awesome beach with only 1 small restaurant with great food and 2 beach bars. Love that place!
  • We have used taxi collectivo for 20 CUC/per person(round trip) to go there. You can rent chair and umbrellas(for 2 chairs and 1 umbrella we paid around 6 CUC (remember negotiate) nice place, during the day it can get crowded but still worth it.
  • Wonderful beach. I recommend as a mandatory relax stop in Cuba
  • Beautiful beach with clear blue water. The only thing I didn't love about this beach when I visited back in 2015 was the amount of sand flies. Otherwise, it was a nice small local beach.
