Santa Lucía Beach is located on the northern coast of Camagüey Province. It’s an intimate beach destination known for the hospitality of the staff and locals and the personalized hotel services. Not surprisingly, many travelers are repeat visitors here.
This wonderful spot has 21 km of wide, white and golden sandy beaches bathed by warm turquoise water. From here you can literally swim to one of the world’s largest barrier reefs. The reef protects high waves from rolling in; ideal conditions for families with small children.
With no fewer than 35 dive sites, the snorkeling and scuba diving are also excellent here. The rich underwater flora and fauna is complemented by many sunken ships, some of them dating from the 19th century.
Inland, the "Laguna El Real" is an excellent place for seeing flocks of Roseate Flamingos and other water birds. In 90 minutes by car, you’ll reach the city of Camagüey, another of Cuba’s fascinating destinations and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Choosing Santa Lucía makes it easy to combine a beach vacation with an authentic Cuba experience, especially when you rent a car.
Santa Lucía hotels are 3 to 4 star resorts mostly in bungalow-style accommodation. Playa Santa Lucía is a small scale tourist destination in harmony with its natural surroundings.
