Varadero beach or Playa Azul, is located in the north of the province of Matanzas, on the Hicacos peninsula, in the tourist region of Varadero and in the Matanzas-Cardenas-Varadero subregion – Cuba. Varadero Beach stretches almost uninterrupted for 13 miles (21 kilometers) along a shoreline framed by mangrove forests.
Considered one of the main tourist poles of the country, captivated by its fine white sand and its delicate blue waters, warm and transparent all year round, in which, depending on the place, bathers can move away tens of meters from the shore without covering them completely.
The tourist pole is led by several Cuban and foreign hotel chains, such as Gran Caribe, Gaviota, Grupo Cubanacan, Sol Melia, Barcelo, among others, and has a powerful infrastructure of restaurants specializing in Creole and international food, snack bar, shops and shopping centers, marinas and dive centers with subsidiaries in the hotels.
Varadero beach is characterized by part of how beautiful it is, in having soft waves, which allows you to enjoy its sea, which, like the entire Caribbean, is warm and delicious for swimming.
Varadero is chosen as the world’s second beach in 2019 by the TripAdvisor website users
