El Francés Beach

Playa El Francés can be found on Cuba’s southern Caribbean coastline a short distance west of the city of Santiago. Stretching back from warm waters to Highway 20, it is easily reached by road, allowing locals and visitors to spend time on this pristine piece of golden sand.

Approximately 500 metres long, Playa El Francés curves ever so slightly around its bay, while mature trees provide some natural shade for beachgoers. Although relatively undeveloped, a village on the opposite side of the highway includes a paladar – a locally-owned restaurant – as well as somewhere to stay.
