  • Description Beaches: Guardalavaca Beach, Holguin. Cuba

    Guardalavaca stretches over 3 km. of beach among steep cliffs, facing the Atlantic Ocean, 54 km. north-east of Holguín province. Its warm, quiet waters, turquoise blue in color, are protected by coral reefs, 300 m. into the sea, creating an ideal microclimate for sea life.

    The water is very clear and the visibility good up to depths of 20 m. allowing for remarkable diving in places like “Boca de las Esponjas”, “El Salto” y “El cañón de los Aguajíes”. Gibara is home to a series of underwater caves unique in the island with great possibilities for cave diving.

    The sea bottom is swarming with a variety of coral beds, crustaceans and fish such as barracuda, swordfish, peacock fish, spanish mackerel, etc.

    Guardalavaca (meaning Hide the Cow) is called “Cuba’s Archeological Capital”. As legend has it, XVI and XVII century Spanish settlers used it as a hide out for their cattle, to avoid being ransacked by the corsairs and pirates frequently visiting the island in search of booty. It is also said that on the beaches of Guardalavaca settlers used to trade leather goods and salted meat in exchange for European goods smuggled by buccaneers.

    The beach is fantastic
    The beach is fantastic everyday but Sunday when the locals seem to spend a lot of time down in our area. The guys that work the beach shack, Carlos, Johnny and Jesus are fantastic and will go out of their way for you. Carlos and Jesus are both fishing nuts so some extra line and a few lures in you bag for them.

    Lovely warm and soft sand. No stony pebbles in this water. You walk in and bathe in the warmth of the sea. The life guards are friendly and professional. Yes there are people trying to sell you stuff. Remember this a poor country, so I for one can't hold it against them. As for the peanuts, give them a try... More

    This beach is really great for us sun-dogs... the water is fantastic, the beach is cleaned daily and best of all there's a coral reef just a few hundred feet offshore.

    Part 1 was the Topes de Collantes, part of the same area, the higher part of it. Our group had an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and educated.
