Beaches and Nature in Eastern Cuba

The Cuban archipelago, a key region in the Caribbean tourist environment, benefits from the country's diversity of natural, historic and cultural attractions for tourism.

In that regard, eastern Cuba offers Guardalavaca beach, a perfect combination of fine white sand and crystal-clear water near mountains and exuberant vegetation.

Several keys devoted to tourism, natural parks and extrahotel options complement the tourist offers in Holguin province, which is visited by thousands of vacationers every year.

Diving enthusiasts have an excellent option in Tanque Azul de Caletones, a flooded cavern inside the most important grotto for migratory birds in the region.

Cayo Saetía complements the region's options, as it holds the only game preserve in Cuba, where hunters can find deer, boars, buffaloes, ostriches, peacocks and wild bulls, among other animals.

Also in eastern Cuba, tourists can visit the provinces of Ciego de Avila and Camagüey, which are close to the tourist destination known as Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens), the name given by the Spanish conquistadors to a series of islets of singular attraction for tourists.

In Camagüey, beach options are in Santa Lucia, which has a 20-kilometer-long strip of white sand and warm crystal-clear water and is protected by a huge coral reef.

On the south coast, Jardines de la Reina (Queen's Gardens) is an excellent place for scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as taking a swim with sharks or having an unforgettable stay at the floating hotel Tortuga.

Las Tunas province also offers a wide range of tourist options linked to Cuba's beaches, nature, culture and history.

The province's 265-kilometer-long shores hold 35 pristine beaches of excellent quality, crystal-clear water, coral reefs and white sand.

The promotion of the tourist industry in Las Tunas took place after several centuries of economic activities oriented to the sugar and cattle sectors, and the recent development of the iron and steel industry with the construction of one of the most modern plants in the country.

Las Tunas holds the city of Puerto Padre, whose first inhabitants arrived in 1869 and was the scenario of important battles during the Ten-Year War for Cuba's independence.

As a singular element, Puerto Padre's seafront drive has one of few freshwater springs in Cuba that flows into the sea, so it is a major attraction for visitors.

The offers for foreign tourists are complemented by game preserves and forests for nature tourism, in addition to mineral-medicinal waters in Jesus Menendez municipality and facilities to practice spelunking.
