Celebrating the undiscovered charms of Caribbean travel & culture.
Playas del Este, Cuba by Patrick Bennett

Escaping Havana to Las Playas del Este

Escaping Havana to Las Playas del Este

Just twenty minutes east of downtown Havana stretch 15 miles of wind-swept white sands known as the Eastern Beaches or Las Playes del Este. There’s Tarará, El Mégano, Bacuranao, Santa María del Mar, Boca Ciega, Guanabo, La Veneciana, and Brisas del Mar. Sure, Havana is a city of two million rich with nooks and crannies worth exploring around every corner, but sometimes you still need a little beach time and Playas del Este definitely deliver.

Wish you were here?

    Awesome article Patrick, you have shone a bright light on Cuba and it sounds like a lovely place to visit. I would put it on my list of places in the Caribbean I would like to experience along with Jamaica, Cayman islands, Trinidad and Tobago, U.S. Virgin islands, Barbados and to many more to mention.
