I was here in 2016, took a shared taxi from Vinales. Took about 90 minutes to get here, beautiful water, very remote location. The mosquitoes were really bad, especially at the 2 little huts that contained restaurants.

Beach with white sand and turquoise water and no people! There is a small bar on the beach where they make the best "coco loco" freshly made in a coconut. Also restaurant and toilet facilities.

Perfect for a day trip from Viñales, Cayo Jutias (named for the opposing-sized tree rat of Cuba) is a lovely clean family friendly beach resort where you can snorkel and enjoy decent food. We visited in June when we had the beach practically to ourselves....More

We have used taxi collectivo for 20 CUC/per person(round trip) to go there. You can rent chair and umbrellas(for 2 chairs and 1 umbrella we paid around 6 CUC (remember negotiate) nice place, during the day it can get crowded but still worth it.
