Directions to Long Beach
In Matanzas approximately 13 km from the Bay of Pigs, you will find Playa Larga, an extensive 4 km long sandy beach, famous among other things for being the scene of a skirmish in which an American group, on April 17, 1961 , they intended to take control of the beach and were repelled by the Cuban people.
Playa Larga is the typical picture of the Cuban Caribbean: calm and clean waters, white sand, palm trees and the exotic vegetable mantle that covers the surrounding areas.
However, some elements endow this beach with its own identity: the Laguna de las Salinas, where birds take refuge from the harshness of winter, and a fantastic coral reef that surrounds the bay and is distinguished from the others by the presence of the huge shark Lady who swims in its waters. It is not dangerous, and you can touch it if you wish.
You will have no trouble finding accommodation, many houses are offered to accommodate guests in their rooms and, also, you will find a small hotel for a reasonable price if you want more privacy.
