Playa Santa Maria sits at the end of the road from Camaguey. Situated within an area rich in mangrove deltas, it has become a haven for Cuba’s endemic birdlife.

Beachgoers are generally impressed by what they find at Playa Santa Maria, which comprises light-coloured sand drifting down to stone-free shallows which sparkle in the sunlight. However, largely occupied by beachfront properties, some may find they get a feeling of being overlooked, since few areas of free beach remain.

On the plus side, the local community helps to provide facilities many will be looking for, including transport and places to eat and drink. In addition, its westward position ensures Playa Santa Maria is an excellent place to admire the sunset.
