Cuba: The Beaches

“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain,
the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach”
- Henry Beston -

Cuban beaches. How can I describe them? They are simply magnificent. And the 21 kilometers (13 miles) of almost uninterrupted beach in Varadero, the area we stayed in, is unforgettable.

Take a look...




Sparkling clean




Powder white sand




Tranquil, turquoise water




Magical




One of the best destinations in the Caribbean




And 330 sunny days per year to enjoy it all


Ahhh...this is the life...


You will fall in love with the beaches in Cuba. I know we did.

Come on in, the water's fine!

Have a beautiful day, everyone.

    1. There is no way you can't be happy in that type of setting. I don't miss the heat and humidity, but I do miss the beach and my daily swim!
