Holguin’s shoreline is characterized by the almost constant presence of orographic formations, which makes its beaches to be in general different from the rest prevailing in Cuba, since they are opened among the steep reefs plunging into the sea, surrounded by vegetation and whitish rocks.
From Gibara to the west and Cayo Saetia to the east, there is a great tourist circuit with excellent hotels, variety of services and all kinds of nautical offers, taking advantage of the privileged coastal geography of the province, where there are plenty of bays, coves and remarkable beaches. Pesquero Viejo, Don Lino, Guardalavaca, Esmeralda and Pesquero Nuevo, among others are some of them, having in common the perfect sea environment offered to their guests that visit their hotels with a sea opening to the world with crystalline and splendid waters, behind the white sandy strips.
A spectacular place is let’s say, the Bahia de Naranjo Natural Park, where a nice sea facility works with natural pools, restaurants, a dolphin site where shows and bathes with these mammals are offered, shops and other services as well.
Nautical excursions and offers are commercialized at the tourist desks that include the land and maritime transfers’ round trip tickets. One of the most requested is Cayo Saetia, a paradise of 42 square kilometres with its own pier and the 65% of the territory covered with a tropical jungle, inner lagoons and great beaches all over the place, rarely seen elsewhere.
