One of the best all-inclusive resorts in Cuba

Santa Lucía Beach is 110 km - just a little over an hour's drive - from the city of Camagüey, capital of the province of the same name.

Thousands of visitors from abroad come here each year to enjoy the sun, sand, salty air and clear water of this 21 km long beach protected by the second longest coral reef in the world, a fantastic place for scuba diving and other water sports. This beach and Sabinal, Romano, Cruz and Guajaba Cays, in the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago, just offshore, are the home of the largest colony of Roseate Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) in Cuba and of other species of Cuban coastal flora and fauna. From Santa Lucía Beach, you can go on excursions to the Cubitas Mountains, where there are over 300 species of lush vegetation, and to the port of Nuevitas, the city closest to the resort.

Ernest Hemingway used to frequent this coast while going hunting or fishing on board his yacht, Pilar, and also when hunting down German U-boats during World War II. His most autobiographical novel - Islands in the Stream, published in 1970 - was based on these experiences.

The longest uninterrupted coral reef in Cuba comes as close as 200 m to the beach. You can see the top of this natural attraction easily from the beach, for waves coming in from the Atlantic break on it. Thus, the water is always calm and free of marine species that are dangerous to man. The temperature averages 27 ºC during the hotter months of the year and 23.3 °C from December through March. There is little rain, and winds average 14 km/h.
