Water Sports on East Havana Beaches Playa del Este in Cuba
Tourist Flock to Havana Beaches
Record number of foreign tourist have visited the beaches of Cuba this year as countries like Canada Italy, Spain Portugal, Germany, France and especially Russia have all had significant increases in Cuba Vacations. Russia has always had Cuba on their holiday hotel agenda but traffic has decreased for over a decade until this year where Russian tourist armed with big dollars have invaded Cuban beach hotels from Varadero, Havana, Trinidad & Cayo Largo.
The true surprise is that even though the American government has had a 50 year embargo against Cuba, this year the American Tourist was #1 in terms of growth in tourism to Cuba. U.S. tourist from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and the top American state to send Tourist to Cuba was Miami Florida due to its large number of Cuban  Americans that return frequently to visit their family back in Cuba.

Playa Del Este Havana Cuba Beaches

The Cuban beaches east of Havana are known as "Playa del Este". They are just 20 minutes from Downtown Havana, and include from West to East: Bacuranao Beach, Tarara Beach, El Megano Beach, Santa Maria del Mar Beach, Boca Ciega Beach, Guanabo Beach, Veneciana Beach and Rincon Beach. Choose from 7 km of white sand beach.

Bacuranao Beach is the closest to Havana, and strictly speaking is in the Celimar, Habana del Este district. Through the beach runs the fresh water Bacuranao creek. The beach is not easy for the tourist to find, but is popular with the locals and the Habaneros.

Playa Santa Maria del Mar is a pleasant non-touristy beach, but packed with Habaneros at weekends. It has white sand with remains of coral and shells. Its waters are crystal clear with different shades of green and blue. Underwater, Santa María shows a beautiful landscape of coral reefs, shellfish and lively colored fish. It is an experience to dive in these waters, due to the abundance of the fauna and its irregular landscape.

Guanabo is a charming seaside town with a magnificent beach and a nightlife provided by many discos.
