oh Cuba, I am getting nostalgic now thinking at all the pretty beaches out there and that considering that I have only got time to visit a few of them. Here some pictures of what I got to see, you should definitely try them out if in the area.
Cayo Jutias, Pinar del Rio
If you go to Vinales you have to book some time in your trip to come and enjoy this very nice beach.
Rancho Luna, Cienfuegos
A small detour to El Nicho from Cienfuegos is Playa Ranco Luna. If you go there in the morning you have the chance to be alone with the sea.
Playa Ancon, Trinidad
you can get a taxi for up to 2 CUC per person to drive you here from Trinidad, it cools down the heat from the city
all Cubans I have talked to highlighted to me that The Cayos are NOT Cuba and indeed they are not, but if you have the time you will enjoy the white sand and the ultra clean and clear turquoise water.
Playa Managua, Baracoa
we arrived exactly at sunset so could not enjoy it in it's full glory but for sure it's a place to take a break on your way to Baracoa if coming from Camaguey
