From Trinidad we cycled the length of Ancon Beach and thoroughly enjoyed it. The coastline here is really quite natural and relatively unspoilt away from the sporadic resort hotel. There are various small beaches where sunshades are available for rent and a couple of beachside...More

Food and drink available to public on the beach. Clean and water is great. You can rent kayaks or go for boat rides too.

This beach was so peaceful, my partner and I cycled here and has to entire beach to ourselves. the sunset was wonderful, It's quite secluded but easy to get to. Bike is easy because the roads are so flat.

15 mins out of town is this beauty of a beach. Definitely one of the most relaxed we had been to when in Cuba, sand was pretty clean and there were facilities close by.

Only a 10-15 minute drive from central Trinidad this beautiful beach is definitely worth visiting. Only 2 CUC for a sunbed and umbrella for the day. There's a bar there too plus someone selling pizza tacos walking up and down the beach.

Decent enough beach (some bars, beds etc.) with ample room to find your own private bit of beach if you walk a bit further down.
