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.

We spent a day on this beach from 10:30am to 4pm, while being in Vinales for 5 nights. We had been adviced to go here instead of Cayo Levisa, as the ferry to that island is quite expensive. The beach is magnificent, with emerald green...More

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.

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.

Enchanting white sand beach – one of the most beautiful we saw in Cuba. It is definitely worth the trip. You can take taxi collectivo or the bus. There are two restaurants and bars on the beach. The food was ok and the beer was...More

Cayó Jutias is far from everything (takes 2 hours with an experienced driver who knows all the holes in the road to get there from Viñales), but definitely worth the efforts. The mangroves are beautiful and the water is clear and has the perfect blue...More
