Varadero Beach, Cuba

Varadero is the main resort town in Matanzas, Cuba located between the Bay of Cardenas and the Straits of Florida. It is the biggest beach and the main attraction in the resort town.

A stunningly beautiful and lush surrounding with white sandy beach, the water is so clear, and it is possible to walk far into the ocean, as it is shallow and has sand banks under water. The Varadero Beach attracts an average of 1 million visitors annually.

It is a serene yet fun beach to be on, with lifeguards constantly on patrol and plenty of beach chairs. It is appropriate and engaging for both adults and kids.
