Approximately 20 kilometres north of Baracoa in the far east of Cuba, Playa Maguana has golden sands which run for about a kilometre. It is edged by a thick carpet of tropical planting studded with only occasional buildings. Equally well protected from its coastal side, an offshore coral reef prevents oceanic waves sweeping Playa Maguana while providing a habitat for colourful fish which can be seen when snorkelling.

Enjoyed by local Cubans as well as international visitors, Playa Maguana is relatively undeveloped, with little more than a shack which opens at popular times serving up food and drink. Although geographically isolated, it may not be the best beach for those seeking out solitude because of the regularity with which locals bring portable stereo systems to Playa Maguana.
