A paradise just outside Havana

Havana is a good point to start your vacations in Cuba. It is a lively and colorful city. But after a few days, travelers will desire to be in a quieter place. And go somewhere to take a break from the noisy capital. That place is 20 minutes outside the city in a car ride. We are talking about Playas del Este.

Playas del Este is the Spanish for beaches of the east. It refers to a shortline of 10 kilometers at the eastern side of Havana. This set of beaches are a real paradise in Cuba. Turquoise waters, fine white sand and perfect to outdoor activities.

Clear your mind with a walk along the beach, go swimming in the crystal clear waters. Take a rest under an umbrella while sipping fresh coconut juice with rum. These beaches are popular among tourists and locals, but not so crowd as other destinations like Varadero. So they are perfect to enjoy a quiet time in a paradisiacal place.

The string of beaches starts at Bacarunao and ends at Playa Jibacoa. There are also restaurants, stores, cafes, and bars to enjoy the visit. And, at the beaches, you could relax or enjoy water sports.
