I've been to a lot of beaches, but Varadero beach offers the best sand, and calm waters, with snorkelling right off the beach. Kept very clean, I return to it at least twice a year.

Amazing wide beach with white sand and gorgeous clear water. You will definitely enjoy your time on that beach starting from the sunrise and up to an amazing sunset....

The best part of the trip was the beaches and the cleanliness of the pools and beaches. You are not going there for "5-Stars" because it doesn't exist.

These beaches are large, clean and scenic. A pleasure to visit. There is some areas with wide areas of sand to relax, clean clear water to wade in, and some areas are a bit rocky with plants, fliers and birds in abundance.

There was some on the beach where we stayed but not as much as when we were there in April month. It’s not a perfectly manicured beach but no issue with swimming or walking ,,,
