We got the tourist bus here to santa maria beach for 3 cucs each return a bargain and well worth the day out. The beach is lovely snack bars and beds for hire etc.

We spent a very pleasant day at the beaches to the east of Havana. Beautiful water, clean beach and (as with everywhere in Cuba) freindly people.

We caught the local bus to the beach, from the Parque Central. The beach was quite clean, with fine silvery white sand and some shade from the palm trees, a supermarket quite close (to buy water and picnic ingredients) and a beach cafe which had no coffee :-( (but did sell alcohol!)
Not too many people there in mid-March - but a nice variety of things going on in the form of surf-gliding, jelly-fish, small groups of bathers/sun-bathers etc.

30 mins from town.... simple facilities but a couple all inclusive hotels.... worth a day trip.
