Playa Santa Lucia

All the hotels in Santa Lucia are located on a single beach called « Playa Santa Lucia » with a length of over 20 kms of white sand medium grain. Ideal for long hours of walking. Bring your sandals or water shoes because there are areas where the sand is quite irritating for the feet.

From the beach, you can see the coral reef, the second longest in the world (according to the Cubans. In Honduras, Roatan would be considered as the second. Food for thoughts!)

An environment of choice for divers. There are over 50 species of corals, 200 of sponges and about 500 tropical fish.

It is not recommended to go snorkeling at the coral reef from the beach, because the distance is too long. However, you can take a paddleboat for free at the hotels. You go there with two passengers and alternately snorkels and the other look for the pedal boat, be careful not to let it drift!

Playa Santa Lucia is not the place for « Au Naturel » lovers. The beach is very long but as there is no really deserted zone and Cuban families spend times on the beach, this is not the place for a skinny dipping! If you want to know more about this subject, you are all invited to visit our website. Regarding topless, as everywhere in Cuba, it is possible on the beach of the hotel zone. This is what we see during our stay. But we did not see topless around the pool.
