Guardalavaca is a beach area located in the Eastern province of Holguin. The area is divided into three different beaches: Guardalava, Playa Esmeralda and Playa Pesquero, all three beaches boasting lush tropical vegetation, brilliant sands dotted with typical trees to protect you from the generous Cuban sun, clear turquoise waters, a tranquil and beautiful seascape and a small cluster of hotels. A train links Guardalavaca beach to Esmeralda, making it easy and pleasant to discover the region.
Guardalavaca is undoubtedly among the most beautiful beach locations in Cuba. You will be delighted by the natural scenery and the multitude of activities that you can do here. Besides relaxing and sunbathing, Guardalavaca is an ideal place for diving and snorkeling, as the corals and reefs are few metres away from the beach. Besides, the water is calm most of the time due to the coral reef, making it the perfect holiday spot for families. If you are interested in water sports, you can also practice catamaran riding, pedaling and so much more. For nightlife, hotels offer a lot of entertainment opportunities, along with night clubs and parties held on the beach. Furthermore, you can go hiking -the highest mountain peak of Cuba can be found on Playa Esmeralda, and more than a hundred beaches, numerous caves, rivers, mountains, waterfalls and natural springs. You can further explore the province of Holguin, famous for the best Cuban beer, the best fishing, the best diving and the most beautiful places and convince yourself that there is no better place than Cuba and its beaches!
Although tourism here is flourishing, Guardalavaca remains to be a moderately remote destination. It has all that you can ask for: the breathtaking panoramas, being among Cuba's prettiest resort area, and the serenity of a virgin beach –the ideal combination for a great holiday.
