Is it typically windy in February in Cayo Largo? Worried about beach erosion. Thanks :)

Yes CL is often windy but I think that being worried about beach erosion is taking it a bit too serious unless you are there during Hurricane season you need NOT to worry about beach erosion. Mother nature will be herself but if this is to happen to a certain level that we would be in danger you will know about it and will not be flown there.

Some beach might disappear at some places in CL when it is a bit more windy than usual but even it if does you can still use other beaches there and it will be amazing and calm.

Cheers

In my experience most of the beaches in Cuba can be windy in the winter. Some resorts are in coves that are more protected. It really is hit & miss on whether it will be windy the week you are there.

In the winter the beach is protected from the north wind by the beach banking.

1-2 weeks after a full moon the beach is filled in.

Beaches are unstable on Cayo Largo. They are constantly changing, and this can happen at all times of the year. The prevailing easterlies take more of a toll on the exposed hotel beaches, thus Sol Pelicano probably has the most stable beach.

Capricho beach at Playa Blanca has been big for years too.

There's a new boardwalk and beach bar there too.
