Beaches

holguin

Holguin deserves a visit for its paradisiacal beaches with crystal clear waters and fine white sand, and its exuberant vegetation, such as Playa Esmeralda, Playa Pesquero, Guardalavaca and Cayo Saetía, among others. Guardalavaca is one of our favorites, a well-maintained beach with an impressive coral reef, interesting cliffs and curious vegetation. Cayo Saetía always fascinates us, a small natural paradise with exotic fauna.
