The nicest beach anyone could ask for. Clean and friendly help whenever needed. the beach is cleaned and dragged every day before any people are up and at it. Water is crystal clear and clean.

Just Beautiful ❤️ Sand and Water. Tide is usually always low enough to swim so its great for families with young children. Sand is like icing sugar. Lots of sea shells.

Shallow beach with a beautiful sand in a calm weather. They windy waves brings chops of corals and seashells to the beach. Very nice for long walks along the ocean.

Definitely do not travel away from Havana where all the cruise ships dock. There are several beaches around Havana that you can visit and are closer to you .
