Playa Ancón

Just 20 minutes from the town of Trinidad by a ride in one of Cuba’s stylish vintage taxis, Playa Ancón forms an idyllic ribbon of white sand running alongside the light blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Tall palms provide natural shade from the sun, while other forms of native vegetation provide a home for the iguanas which can often be seen basking on sand which extends uninterrupted for four kilometres.

Rarely overcrowded as a result, beachgoers are able to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. Besides relaxing for the day, visitors can choice to snorkel or even scuba dive. There are twenty dive sites taking in a coral reef and several sunken ships to be found beyond the sea grasses. Outside of the all-inclusive resorts, facilities are limited to a car park and a restroom however.
