Varadero Beach offers nearly 36 km (22 mi) of exquisitely fine sand, so soft it feels like powdered sugar. Visitors from the four corners of the world flock here for classic sun-and-sand vacations, cooled by pleasant tropical breezes. The area's resorts offer every modern amenity imaginable, while the beach itself is well equipped for a range of water sports, like snorkeling and scuba diving. Just beyond the heavenly beach, you can find plenty of chances to hike the trails and observe the varied wildlife within protected ecological reserves.
