Good beach with white sand and warm water, however it can get crowded. So if you are staying at Princessus Del Mar then go for the Royal service, where the part of the beach is for Royal service residents only otherwise they will kick you out.

Varadero is one of the calmest and best beaches in Cuba. You can walk for hours along it, in front of all the resorts. There is a hop-on-hop-off bus which runs along the whole peninsula. It is a cheap way to get into the town of Varadero for the craft markets.

We have travelled a lot in Caribbean and Cuba beaches are top notch and a must to see. Waters are calm which make it even more enjoyable if you like swimming in ocean

Beautiful sand beach. Nice but busy. Lots of people selling things. Not really a place to go to relax. Preferred the resort beach.

Varadero has the most amazing beach. Beautiful white sand and crystal clear water. What an awesome place to see. Would be better if people would put their cigarette butts in an ashtray instead of dropping them in the sand though.

Purchase on the plane, done in Can $, price was cheaper by about $10-$20 in air, and also saved because CUC $ . price was higher on ground, and also higher because Cuban money. Take a photo of your receipts in case you loose them.

There is a long stretch of gorgeous beach around Club Kawama; one can walk for about an hour on this stretch. Clean, no vendors, war water.
