Cayo Largo, Cuba is home to white sun-kissed sandy beaches that are unlike any other area in the country. Boasting 25 kilometres of beachfront and with the island approximately 200 metres in width, this island is definitely a dream escape for the avid island traveler. Adored by diving and snorkeling enthusiasts for its long reef and a known hot-spot for water sport lovers; this tiny isle keeps its tourists coming back year after year.
On the south part of the island, visitors can indulge in glorious Caribbean sunrises and sunsets that shimmer off the crystal clear waters. Only 17 miles from the capital, Havana, Cayo Largo offers visitors excellent deep sea fishing opportunities, off-road jeep trails and sandy coral coloured beaches to stroll upon. Don’t miss out on a visit to the Sea Turtle Hatchery where you and the kids can see enormous turtles return to the beach to lay their eggs or a visit to the pearly-white sandy beaches of Playa Paraiso and Playa Sirena. There aren't any other beaches in Cuba like these two hidden gems. There are also shallow flats and numerous mangroves surrounding Cayo Largo for those who like to go bonefishing! While this island may be super small, there is always room for exploration and adventure. And remember, great things come in small packages!
