Havana Sights

Playa Jibacoa

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

Santa Cruz del Norte, 10 km (6 mi) east of Playa Guanabo, is an industrial town that's home to Cuba's greatest distillery, the Ronería Santa Cruz, where the ubiquitous Havana Club rum is made. Don't let the offshore oil rigs or the less than pristine waters here deter you from continuing. Just 3 km (2 mi) east of Santa Cruz is Playa Jibacoa, the best and least spoiled of all of the beaches near Havana. Nestled between headlands at the mouth of the Río Jibacoa, its white

sands are backed by cliffs that overlook crystal-clear, aquamarine waters. Divers will appreciate the coral reefs here, while terrestrial types can follow hiking trails from the beach into the back country. The Breezes Hotel here is one of the finest beach hotels in Cuba.
