Holidays in Varadero
With 20 km of stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters, it is easy to see why Varadero is Cuba's premier beach resort. This spectacular beach is set on the narrow Hicacos Peninsula on the northern coast of the island. Varadero offers modern hotels, excellent facilities and a superb selection of bars and cafes. By day sample the resort activities, including excellent scuba diving and snorkelling, or laze on the fine white sand listening to the gentle lapping of the sea and the sounds of the Caribbean. Visit nearby Cardenas City, swim with dolphins at the aquarium or enjoy the virgin beach at the nearby nature reserve. By night, choose from hotel cabarets with their colourful costumes, restaurants offering both Cuban and international food, or nightclubs where you'll salsa into the early hours. Varadero is the heartbeat of Cuban nightlife!
