Esmeralda Beach

Enjoy the idyllic Playa Esmeralda and discover the beautiful coral formations that are under its waters

Esmeralda Beach

The Emerald Beach, formerly known as Playa Estero Ciego, being located in the Ciego Caleticas estuary, is located just over 5 kilometers west of Guardalavaca, Cuba, and is characterized by warm, clean waters of an intense green. This small paradise is surrounded by cliffs, steep slopes and a large number of plant species that complete the charming landscape.
You can only access the beach if you are a guest of one of the three megaresorts built around it and here many lovers of snorkeling and diving go every year, for the beauty of the different coral formations that are under the warm waters of Playa Emerald. In addition, the resorts also offer windsurfing or sailing activities.

Esmeralda Beach
Another attraction for tourism is its ease of access, since it is 72 kilometers from the Holguin International Airport, Frank País.
