Best Beach to visit in the Cayos

28 Mar 2008  Holidays in Cayo Guillermo
4.5 of 5 stars based on 3 votes

Chilled day on one of the best beaches in Cuba, if your staying in Cayo Coco or Cayo Guillermo take a cab to Pilar Beach which is a shallow white sand beach on Cayo Guillermo. Go early and have the place to yourselves, no sounds just the water. Take banana to feed the fish which will come from everywhere to you in the shallows to feed. Ensure you take some drink and food, there is a small restaurant there but they can have limited supplies. Shelter and sunbeds are available at a cost of 1peso. You can also take a boat to Half Moon island which is just off shore where you can wade out to a stunning coral reef and snorkel, remember that banana again to feed the fish. The beach is about 2km long and there is plenty of room and it never gets crowded.
This is a must if you are in the area and try to pick a less windy day as the sea is at its best when there is little wind.

Update - Feb 2010 New walkways and restaurants new pics on file, very nicely done.
