Top 5 Cuba Beach Destinations on the North Coast

Most people who travel to Cuba for their holidays think of Cuba as one of the top Caribbean beach destinations. In fact, though Cuba is much more than just excellent beaches, it is worth considering Cuba beaches when you are planning a holiday in the Caribbean.
Which are Cuba's top beaches? - It is a question many friends ask me. I would say that most Cuba beaches are above world standards. But there are some I prefer more than others. It all depends on what your preferences are and what kind of holiday you are looking for. I will go over the characteristics of some of them to give you a better idea.
Varadero Beach
Varadero is a world known beach that offers all the main attractions tourists might look for on their beach holiday: more than 20 kilometres of an uninterrupted fine white sandy beach with warm clear turquoise waters, that seem to be taken from a tropical beach postcard, lots of water sport options and night entertainment, a perfect place for those who like diving and are interested in finding a good all inclusive resort.
Some people claim that when you opt for Varadero you don't experience the "real Cuba". I wouldn't say that, it all depends on you. Besides, what is the "real Cuba"? I am one of those who think that no tourist will ever know the "real Cuba", but if what you mean is being in contact with Cuban culture and Cuban people, well, there are many Cubans in Varadero. Just don't forget that Cubans don't generally go to the beach from September to April. It is kind of cold for them. However, if you visit Varadero in July or August, you will see it is full of Cubans. Especially people from Havana like going to Varadero. They can't avoid the temptation of enjoying this top Cuban beach, just 2 hour drive from the capital city.

Best Beach Holidays

Of course a summer break could include all kinds of other locations, such as a visit to famous city, some high altitude walking in the mountains or time spent in one of the famous Lakeland areas of the world such as the Italian Lakes like Garda or Como, the Canadian great lakes or the Swedish Fjords. But more often than not there is likely to be some type of beach involved in most people's summer vacation. The Spanish Canary Islands are a small group of islands that have their own variety of beaches that provide holidaymakers with plenty of choice, whatever their preferences.
So what is it about a beach that attracts so many people? After all warm sunny weather can be experience in most locations, and swimming opportunities are found in many inland areas, either in lakes or rivers. Beaches have several unique characteristics that perhaps contribute to their allure. First there is the sand itself. The soft sand is comfortable to lie on, feels nice to walk on and of course provides a great play environment for small children. But sandy beaches are not the only popular ones, with shingle and rocky beaches also proving attractive. The views offered by coastal locations are also a factor. There is something pleasing about an outlook where the land has ended and the sea stretches off into infinity.
Imaginations run riot about what may be over the horizon, and the hustle and bustle of the world inland can be left behind. Of the course the sea itself plays a part. Unlike lakes, the sea is altogether a more dramatic and powerful beast. Gentle swells or crashing waves make the sea and ever changing environment and one that can either be just looked at or made use of as part of other pastimes. Fishing, swimming, surfing, sailing, diving, kayaking and windsurfing are just some of the sports and hobbies that make use of the sea. One other aspect is of course wildlife. Either in the water, above it or along its shores the sea supports a myriad of life forms that vary across the world. Beaches can be a naturists heaven at all times of the year.
For those seeking a place to lie in the sun there are beaches all over the world that easily fulfil that requirements. From the beaches of the Spanish Costa Blanca to Australia's Gold Coast, long sandy beaches are everywhere it seems. For the ultimate in sandy beach tranquility one of the 1000's of Maldives islands may be the ideal. Tiny islands, some with room for just one dwelling and surrounded entirely by white soft sand, these are perhaps the sand lovers dream. On the island of Fuerteventura are perhaps some of the Canaries' best sandy beaches. In the north of the island is the biggest beach, stretching for several kilometers south from Corralejo. The waters here, looking across to the nature reserve on the Isla of Lobos, can be a turquoise blue and soft sand reaches inland across dunes for over 2 kilometers. They present almost a desert scene looking inland towards the hills of extinct volcanoes like Volcan de la Olive.
