Playas del Este

Open sea, sand dunes and coconut palms!


Beyond Alamar stretch a series of beach resorts known collectively as the Playas del Este (Eastern Beaches). This is where Habaneros come to enjoy the sea and sand. The closest beach is Playa Bacuranao: on a small horseshoe-shaped inlet, it is a favorite with Cuban families and is packed in July and August.

After this is Tarará, where there is a marina and a famous hospital where victims of the Chernobyl nuclear explosion are treated. Then comes a 16 km (10-mile) stretch of open sea, sand dunes, and coconut palms. The sand starts at El Mégano and continues to Santa María del Mar, which has a good beach and is the nicest section of this coast, with a number of seafront hotels.

Farther on is Guanabo, an old seaside town with a lively beach and a number of wooden bungalows built in the 1920s and 1930s, which are very popular with Cubans. Much of this stretch of coast can be seen by taking a ride on the hop-on, hop-off Habana Bus Tour.
