Skip the day and just go late in the afternoon to avoid the heat and sun. It is a little more money but you can have dinner and a massage right on the beach while the sun is setting. There is a nice restaurant there...More

take a room in Villa Maguana and enjoy the sea and sun in a quiet and exclusive location. Only 12 rooms in beautifully build wooden houses. The Villa survived the hurricane of 2012 quite well and the service and beautiful nature are untouched.

One of the better beaches in the area. If you have spent enough time in town and you are looking for a lazy day on the beach, be sure to take the bumpy ride there.

Well worth the bumpy ride from Baracoa, this beach is deserted in the morning and early afternoon (except for the vendors off course), untill the first hikers from El Yunque start to arrive. Nice place to stay and relax. Make sure you play hard to...More

Small beach but there aren't many in the region, so this one is one of the bests! You can order food in restaurants which are not really restaurants but which sometimes can prepare fresh lobster for a great price.

Great trip from Baracoa, not far at all, and you can stay with the lovely family of Hidiolvis, at their casa particular!

A lovely tropical beach about 45 minutes on a mainly rough road from the centre of Baracoa. Negotiate an all day price with the taxi driver. Enjoy the beach, cocktails and book a grilled lobster lunch from Cafe Victor on the beach when you arrive....More

The guidebook stated the road from Baracoa to Playa Maguana was reasonable. No it isn't. It is awful! Having said that, Maguana Beach is worth the effort. Uncrowded, a couple of snack & drinking bars, plus a quality restaurant. This is a real Caribbean beach....More

This is a pretty beach, but dirty and it has too many people selling rubbish. Keep a careful eye on bags whilst there.
