I would rate the beach as a 4. Beautiful ocean but the beach had parts along the ocean where you could not walk on because of all the broken shells.

Beach in Club Kawama , Roc Barlovento , Roc Arena Doradas and Melia Peninsula are very nice - beach in Melia Marina is a joke 15 min ride by mini bus plus 15 min or more waiting time, sorry Melia Marina has no beach.

Stunning beach, that streaches as far as the eye can see. Great for long walks in the morning. The water is clean and clear.

If you want to get out of Havana, Varadero is it. You can always stay at an all-inclusive but that's no fun!! Rent at a Casa and get lost on the white sand with a bottle of Rum. Don't miss the sunset!

One of the world's greatest beaches with white soft sand and beautifully clear waters! Great accommodations with good food and shopping for souvenirs.

Varadero Beach is fantastic! White sand, safe, lots of beach chairs, blue water, but beware of the sand fleas if you are allergic! Bring Deet! . There are a lot of stray dogs & cats wandering around & it's heartbreaking to see but they are apparently well taken care of by the locals. I saw some with the mange! Beach... More

The Beach is amazing, but there are not so many services on your disposal. No toilets, few bars, no sunbeds (only at the hotels beach, but you are not allowed to use it, even if you want to pay). Overall, if it's a hot wheather you can not stay to much on the beach. But, as I sad the beach... More

The Sanctuary beach area was sandwiched between two family resorts. The sitting area was kept clean and neat. They had drink and food service available. As with other resorts, its important to claim your seats early in the morning
