Playa Paraiso

Playa Paraiso is a fabulous stretch of beach where soft, powdery white sand runs parallel to a turquoise sea, all under an almost eternally clear blue sky. It is sandwiched between Playa Blanca and Playa Sirena beaches to the east and west respectively. These and a number of other top-rated beaches are dotted around the resort island of Cayo Largo, just off the Cuban southwest coast. Access to the island is easiest by light aircraft using Cayo Largo Del Sur Airport.

The folk in charge of heaven must have been in party mood when they created “Paradise Beach”, that is the direct translation from Spanish. It is serenely beautiful and secluded - visitors can use various forms of public transport to reach it. With its calm, shallow waters gently lapping the dazzling sand, you will find little to do other than enjoy the warm, azure waters of the Caribbean, sun worship and relax while contemplating where on earth you would find a better spot.

Since there is little by way of natural shade along Playa Paraiso’s approximate 2 miles of magnificent shoreline, it is worth claiming a spot by the collection of thatched umbrellas near the rustic bar-cum-eatery. The bar adds to the relaxed ambience and looks as if it has been in service since Robinson Crusoe went off in search of Friday - the man, rather than the day. If you should decide to go walking eastwards along the beach, you may bump into naturists enjoying things au natural - normal beach protocols apply.

If you opt to use a taxi from your accommodation at Punta mal Tiempo, be sure to have everything you are going to need for a day of fun in the sun. Remember to arrange for your taxi service to collect you at an agreed place and time - confirm the fare in advance too.
