Use the tourist bus that costs 5 CUC return to reach this beach. It’s really a lovely journey on the open-top bus. Beach is very clean with sun beds costing 1cuc and not crowded. Really an enjoyable experience.

Guardalavaca beach is a easily reached on the open top tourist bus. Price is 5cuc return and bus runs twice each day. Beach is not crowded and there are a couple of shops selling souvenirs at modest prices (cheaper than the market and no haggling)....More

Beautiful but some guests would benefit from a gentle reminder to place plastic cups and straws into the bins provided when they have finished their drinks!

A nice beach with white sand and clear blue water. Also had a nice promenade to walk along. You find more beaches and hotels along the front. Well worth a visit.

For outside the hotel restaurants there are not in walking distance from Memories, you will have to go to Guardalavaca, there are many there.
