    • Description Beaches: Cayo Sabinal, Camaguey. Cuba

      On the north coast of Cuba, exactly at the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago, lie the keys, isles and islets that the Spanish conquerors named –between 1513-1514– Jardines del Rey (King’s Gardens), in honor of Fernando the Catholic, Spanish king at the time.

      Located of the central province of Camagüey, Cayo Sabinal (including beaches like Playa Brava, Playa Bonita and Playa Los Pinos), Cayo Guajaba y Cayo Romano are also linked to Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, belonging to the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago.

      Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Cayo Sabinal, caressed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, located in one of the most beautiful coral reefs of the world, are unique places because of the wide range and profusion of their sea species and luxuriant vegetation. The coral reef is second in size only to the Australian one, and stretches west parallel to Sabinal, Guajaba, Romano and Cruz Keys, reaching Varadero. Cayo Sabinal owes its name to the abundance, long ago, of a tree named Sabina (juniper). The mists of old legends also shroud tales of corsairs and pirates stopping there in his sinister adventures for loot, commerce and smuggling.

Popular festivities like the San Juan Camagüeyano, a traditional festival that started in the 18th century, have transcended until our days.

      Camagüey City, the capital of the province, treasures one of the most important historical centers in the country, recently declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO; and is one of the Cuban cities that better preserve the Hispano-Arabic features regarding urbanism and architecture. Its several churches have significant examples of the art and religious-funeral customs of colonial times.

      Santa Lucía Beach, located in the northern coast of the easterncentral part of Cuba, is the main tourist destination in Camagüey province. It has some 21km of warm transparent water, fine white sand and a well preserved environment that serves as habitat to important pink flamingos' colonies. It faces the Old Channel of Bahamas, surrounded to the east by Las Tunas province; to the west by the Jardines del Rey archipelago and to the south by the flat lands of Camagüey. The coral formations, located just 2km off the coast, display a surprising biodiversity that invite to contemplate the undersea beauties. There are 35 diving points at Santa Lucía Beach that allow divers meeting with the remains of sunken ships from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as enjoying a curious show in which experienced guides feed with their bare hands friendly sharks near the Nuevitas Bay.

      Cayo Sabinal Beach
      Cayo Sabinal is another jewel. Once a refuge of pirates-like many other islets in the Cuban archipelago it has several miles of intimate beaches of excellent quality, tucked into nooks along the coastline with virgin areas inland that abound in wildflowers and animals. Here, too, you can see the ruins of San Hilario Fort (built in 1831) and visit Colon (Columbus) Lighthouse (built in 1848), which warns mariners of dangers in the area.
