Cuban beaches – Las Playas
The beaches of Las Playas in Cuba continue the contradiction of this wonderfully appointed natural beauty and it’s lack of any modern influences. Gorgeous blue waters, meeting white sand would be a haven for money, tourists and development in almost any other part of the world. Here, the beaches are almost isolated, surrounded by desolate rural areas, dotted with the customary concrete buildings that so define this communist country.
No major development or infrastructure here. The area we visited had a “resort” although probably 2 star at best. The beaches themselves consist of beach chairs and tables, and some locals who work the beaches selling food and drinks obtained from a couple of small huts. Being someone who is always happy to get out of the heavily populated areas, it is a delightful way to spend a few hours relaxing without the crowds. Just don’t come here looking for the usual western world resort capabilities.
