Manzanillo Sights

Playa las Hadas

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This secluded, nearly private man-made beach is just a tiny crescent of sand on the opposite side of Península de Santiago from the Playa la Audiencia. Framed at both ends by rocks, it's a good snorkeling spot. Expensive restaurants at both Las Hadas and the nearby Karmina Palace serve drinks, snacks, and full meals. Deportes Aquáticos el Pacificio rents Jet Skis and kayaks; it also arranges dive and snorkel trips. Nonguests of the hotels pay $30 per person for use of

the beach, pool, and facilities; this fee is credited toward consumption of food or drink at the snack bar or restaurants, which makes it slightly more palatable. You can see the beach from the top of the cobblestone road that leads to the resort's main entrance; take a look to make sure it's your idea of paradise before shelling out the fee.
