The area has some good beaches. You can visit Playa Bacajagua for a nominal fee. Gray cliffs surround the white sands of Playa Bucanero, which is for the exclusive use of guests at the Hotel Bucanero. Playa Daiquirí, which gave its name to the famous drink first made here in 1898, was the landing site of Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. The beach itself is unattractive and is reserved for military use during parts of the year. Playa Siboney is a clean, dark-sand beach as well as a town with charming wooden vacation homes. There are a couple of nice casas particulares and paladares here as well as traditional lodging and dining options. It's a good spot for a lunch stop.Playa Sigua is known for its two good restaurants: Casa del Pedro del Cojo, specializing in creole dishes; and Los Coraldes, whose forte is seafood. There's also a marina where you can gear up to fish, snorkel, sail, and windsurf.
