Punta Gorda is a smooth save walk area of fisherman and privates where you can spot paladar restaurants like El pelicano that can be a good treat

It was a long walk from the city center to Punta Gorda. The view was nice and it's a good place for relaxing. But I wouldn't like to go swimming at this "beach".

After spending 3 nights near the Plaza Jose Marti and then 3 nights in Trinidad, we returned to Cienfuegos for a final night before flying out the next morning, and spent that night in the Punta Gorda section.

Good vantage point fro seeing the size and shape of the bay. There is a small bar, a park, and a spot where people from the town seem to go for a dip in the bay. We even saw some night snorkeling there one evening, which was fun the watch.

a good place to walk at sunset and gather where all the locals come in the evening. a few street stalls and diners along the way for a drink or quick bite to eat, and if its not to late, extend the walk down to the end where there are some lovely houses and a great outlook into the sea.
