Why go to Varadero

When you imagine a Caribbean beach, chances are you’re picturing Varadero. A 20km stretch of shimmering white sand dissolving into a sea so blue you’ll double take, Playa Azul is the stuff of dreams alright.

Located on the Hicacos Peninsula on Cuba’s northern coast, this enormous resort has been developed for one purpose: beach holidays amid idyllic surroundings – and that’s pretty much what you’ll get.

Everything here is geared towards creating your dream beach break. As a result, you’ll find every kind watersport under the sun. Near the coast, take your pick from surfing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, sea kayaking and sailing, or take a catamaran trip around the surrounding cayos (small islets) for more glorious beaches and deserted island vibes.
