Heavenly destinations: Cuba

Cuba is indeed a heavenly destination, as it has many wonderful places to see.

First, in Guanabacoa, Havana province is where the first of the best beaches in Cuba is located: Playa Guanabo. It is known for its fine sand, crystal clear water and  the surrounding environment. The town is located next to a fishing village that still retains the true essence of Cuba. That particular this is the reason why you should visit it and taste firsthand the characteristic flavor of the country. It is suffice to say that the Cubans themselves spend the summer there.

La Playa El Pilar was named after the ship of the writer Hemingway. He came to spend the summer on his boat “The pillar” on this remote beach located in the province of Ciego de Ávila. It is located in one of the many remote islands that dot the Old Bahama Channel.

South of the island in the town of Trinidad (and also a World Heritage Site by UNESCO) is the Valley of the Sugar Mills. Beside it is Ancon Beach, the most beautiful beach of the south of Cuba. This option allows you to diversify a bit and monitor activities on sunny beach with a walk in the nearby valley or do some diving. This beach has more than thirty points suitable for this activity along the magnificent, extensive coral reefs where lie the remains of ancient sunken ships.

And finally, just a couple of miles from the north coast in the province of Pinar del Río is Cayo Levisa. It is a very small island, just over 2 square kilometers, which has a beautiful beach to the north. It is only accessible by boat which makes it a perfect place for relaxation and privacy. This area is not as urbanized as many others, first for its size and secondly because there are no houses on it. Some small hotels and few restaurants make this perfect island for resting.
