Guardalavaca beach

Ultimate guide 2018
Guardalavaca is a popular beach in the north-east of Cuba, not far from the major town of Holguin. Like Varadero it is a dedicated tourist area with luxury hotels. However, locals are allowed to the beaches of Guardalavaca, so the atmosphere is a little more like the real Cuba. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in the northern coast of Cuba is a warm summer half of the year. The winter weather is even better, but sea water is a bit cold.
