Playa Juraguá

Playa Juraguá - The Caribbean
© Christian Pirkl

Sitting deep within the D of a small bay to the east of Santiago de Cuba, Playa Juraguá may not be the island’s broadest stretch of sand, but it is nonetheless a fantastic place to escape to when the Caribbean Sea beckons. Here a coastline peppered with small rocks evolves into a largely stone-free run of clean sand which continues for around 500 yards.

A grassy area also provides the ideal place for a picnic, while trees provide a sense of seclusion before leading to an attractive forested hill on the beach’s right as you face the water. Its shallows are relatively calm, meaning Playa Juraguá is a good family-friendly beach, although you will not find lifeguards on duty.

Facilities include rentable thatched umbrellas and beach chairs, alongside some basic refreshment options.
