The Beaches of Havana

Havana beach

Playas del Este, Guanabo, Santa Maria, Bacuranao, Megano, Boca Ciega

Playas del Este | East of Havana City

Location & How to Get There

Bacuranao, Megano, Boca Ciega, Santa Maria and Guanabo Beaches are on the northern coast of Cuba around 12 and a half miles (20 km)-just a few minutes' drive-east of Havana, on the way to Matanzas Province. Havana is the main place of entry in the country, either by air-trough Jose Marti International Airport (which has three terminals, plus an Aerocaribbean terminal, and receives flights from more than 40 cities in other countries)-or by sea trough its marina and the modern cruise ship terminal at the port. Tourists visiting other parts of the country can reach Havana by road, rail, sea or air.

Playas del Este Havana Cuba

Take the #400 bus to Guanabo beach.
Find the bus shelter on the north side of "Fundicion" between "Compostela" & "Picota" in old Havana. This is east and south of the front of the central railroad station. It is the origin point of this bus and presents the only chance you will have of getting a seat.
Find the guy who hands out the little cards for seats, otherwise you will stand the whole way out. Find out who El Ultimo is and follow him/her onto the bus. Lines are RELIGIOUSLY OBSERVED. Do not deviate from his procedure! Sit on the left side to see the shore.
Fare is 40 centavos. Frequency in daytime is apprximately 20-30 minutes. Duration of trip is approximately one hour. Other busses serve Playa del Este, but this is the best choice.

Beach West of Havana City

West of Havana, the Marina Hemingway offers the most complete range of marina facilities in the country. Still farther west, in Havana Province again (city of Havana is bounded by Havana Province to the east, south and west), El Salado Beach, protected by coral reefs, has more scuba diving sites.

 

 

Reviews Havana Beach


Name: Catherine
Country: Canada

Guanabo, Havana Playas del Este
The town has a Cuban feel and is nicer and quieter than Varadero town. But the beach was disappointing compared to Varadero or Ancon. The beach needs a good grooming, needs more palm trees, and the access points need to be improved. I wouldn't recommend it.

Havana Guanabo Beach

We stayed at Guanabo for 4 nights.  Nice beaches but it was a bit windy for 2 of our 4 days so we got the bus into Havana.  There were not many other tourists and there was a real 'Cuban' feel about the place.  Recommended
