The best beach ever! There are lifeguards to watch over everyone to keep them safe. They also have lots of sports that you can participate in. Everything from jet skiing to para sailing.

Varadero beach is probably one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen!!! The water is clear as a bell and groomed with very Little Rock’s and shells! We walked daily every morning to help start out our day right while we were in paradise!!

Take a kayak out and let the guys take you out snorkelling! You won’t be disappointed! Always lots of places to sit!

This is one of the nicest beaches we've visited. So clean and sand is so so soft. The sea is wonderful. Miles and miles of never ending sand and sea.

during my visit (Jan. 2018), mother nature was not so cooperative, still acceptable. There are other things to do, trip to downtown Varadero, Havana, or Matanza.

I have seen some of the best beaches in the world and this beach is up there with the very best of them. Gorgeous, clean, beautiful water, loads of room - a brilliant beach experience.

The sea was warm enough for us to swim in during our stay (December) but the Cubans say they only swim during the months of July to September when it’s about 10 degrees warmer. Not sure what temperature it will be in March... More

Definitely do not travel away from Havana where all the cruise ships dock. There are several beaches around Havana that you can visit and are closer to you .
