Varadero Beach offers nearly 36 km (22 mi) of exquisitely fine sand, so soft it feels like powdered sugar. Visitors from the four corners of the world flock here for classic sun-and-sand vacations, cooled by pleasant tropical breezes. The area's resorts offer every modern amenity imaginable, while the beach itself is well equipped for a range of water sports, like snorkeling and scuba diving.

  • Soft sand, and beautiful water. A bit choppy on windier days, but smooth on calmer days. Watch out for the blue jellyfish in the mornings washing up on the shore!  more »
  • A great beach when winds are calm and the flag and green, turquoise and white sand are breathtaking. The period ideal March, April or July, hot August.
