Holguin’s beaches and seaside resorts are located along the northeastern coast of the province. When we speak of the tourist hub of Holguin (served by the Frank Pais Airport) it often also includes Playa Covarrubias which is located in the neighbouring province of Las Tunas since there is no international airport in Las Tunas.
They are made of white sand bathed by crystal-clear turquoise waters. The sea is usually quite calm (small to medium waves), making this resort a great place to enjoy swimming and water sports. In a few places, the entrance to the water may be a little rocky (pebbles and crushed shells) on the first 1-2 meters, and sometimes some rocks and coral patches are not far from the shore, therefore some people would prefer wearing water shoes to go swimming. But in most cases, the entrance to the water is sandy or sandy enough to go barefoot.
Every all-inclusive hotel has lounge chairs, sun-shades, palapas and a nautical centre on its beach. Non-motorised water sports are included.
Unlike many other Cuban resorts, such as Varadero or the Cayos, in Holguin, no continuous beaches are stretching for several kilometres straight. Rather, there are several sections of beaches separated by bays, rocky promontories or streams. Their length varies from about 200 meters to 1 km.
Beaches in Holguin
Playa Guardalavaca, Playa Pesquero and Playa Esmeralda
The three most popular beaches, Esmeralda beach, Pesquero beach and Guardalavaca beach, are close to spectacular dive sites and the best hotels. There is a bus service in hop-on-hop-off mode to move to the beaches and surrounding places.
Beach Towel Service
Every all-inclusive hotel has a Beach Towel Service. You receive a ticket when you check-in to collect your beach towel at the Club House. You can then exchange it for a clean one as you wish during your stay. Before leaving the hotel, you must return it to get your ticket back (needed at check-out). If you have lost your towel, you’ll have to pay a fee (usually 15 to 20 CUC).
