Directions to Maria la Gorda beach
María la Gorda Beach is the dream of all diving enthusiasts. Its crystalline waters and the relative proximity of its reefs to the coast make it, together with the Isla de la Juventud, one of the best points to practice this sport that you can find in Pinar del Río.
There are two areas that are especially interesting for diving, the Black Coral Valley, which forms the largest black coral surface of the archipelago, and the Salon de María, where you can see sea lilies and corals of different colors.
