Vast stretches of warm, cream-coloured sands and tropical, gentle waters - Cuba is an island that offers some of the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean. With vibrant fish floating through the waves and shorelines groomed by luxurious resorts, it's a tough one to pick just a few of the best beaches on this island, but we'll do our best.
A gorgeous stretch of sand east of Havana, Varadero is Cuba's most famous beach. Powdery, white sand, hidden caves and glistening cays surround turquoise waters and stunning coral reefs.
Cayo Largo del Sur
Private beaches, Playa Paraiso and Playa Sirena are home to thriving marine life, curious iguanas and glimmering sands along Cayo Largo del Sur. A secluded and stunning part of the island, easily accessed by boat from Havana, is a must visit when in Cuba.
Cayos Coco and Guillermo
Picture-perfect, undistrubed beaches, watersports galore and clear, shallow waters. A favourite spot among divers and sun-seekers, Cayos Coco and Guillermo are a sure bet for a brilliant beach day in Cuba.
Playa Ancón, Trinidad
Three miles of glistening sand on the charming southern coast of Cuba offering incredible diving and snorkelling in the Caribbean sea. Less crowded than other areas of Cuba, and that's what gives it its charm.
Cayo Levisa, Pinar del Rio
A short boat ride from Palma Rubia port, this tiny island is perfect for a day flopping out on the warm sand. Feeling adventurous? Get out on the water and explore shipwrecks, thriving reefs and have a 'Cristal' at the ramshackle beach bar. Perfection.
