Description Beaches: Tarara Beach, Havana . Cuba
The next beach between Bacuranao and El Mégano is a tourist resort called Tarará, 20 kilometers away of Havana. Its marina (Marina Tarará) is the perfect place for those who want to go out fishing or diving.
Tarará Beach’s diving center has several boats of medium size, quality diving equipment and a very good team of divers. Even though sea bottoms to the east of Havana are basically rocky and there are not coral reefs nor an outstanding variety of flora and fauna, diving in this area of clear and shallow waters can be a pleasant experience for people who enjoy this sport.
One of the most interesting diving sites is a sunken ship near Bacuranao Beach, at Diving in Tararáaround 14 meters under the surface. Another interesting spot in this area is a small rocky edge called Itabo, at 20 meters under the surface, with plenty of big moray eels, lobsters, barracudas, some grouper, parrot fish, dogfish, spider crabs, sponges and fire corals.

Tarara Beach is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.
