Visit Havana’s Beach District

Playa del Este Habana

Havana’s beaches known as Playas del Este Havana are frequently overlooked by tourists, but offer more in the way of Cuban Culture than the resorts elsewhere in the country which feel devoid of life compared to Playas del Este. Just 20 minutes by car from Old Havana, the beaches are really a single, eight-kilometer (5.2 miles) stretch with the names: Tarará, El Mégano, Santa María del Mar, Boca Ciega and Guanabo. Each with their own differing scenic beauty and unique feel, they offer a great insight into how Cubans live and above all, what they do at the beach!
