Varadero beach is calm, clean, and often crystal blue. It was the best part of our stay at the Paradisus resort (the Princessa). We were able to walk far into the ocean, in shallow water, on clear soft sand. Another plus: one can walk far...More

Sanctuary's private adults only beach is the best place to sit in the sun with your feet in the ocean whilst drinking a Mojito, bliss!

This is the cleanest beach and clear water with perfect ocean temperature. A sandy, clean, firm, ocean floor and mild waves to play in. This location makes a perfect beach vacation. Use lots of sunscreen between 10 am and 3 pm.

Hi, looking some advice on which area of Varadero Beach is nicest to stay at? Any views on Tuxpan hotel and area? Also, I've heard the wifi is very poor, my teenagers won't be happy with this, is there wifi in the hotels and is it only available in certain areas?

Can I visit Varadero Beach by going to an All Inclusive Hotel, though not staying there? Meaning, do I have to stay at the hotel to visit the beach from their grounds?

Yes you must have the band on your wrist that each hotel gives out when you arrive. This proves that you are staying at the hotel. Some of the hotels are affiliated with others so before you book check with the travel agent.
What area can we go on the beach that has food/drinks and beach chairs? We plan on spending the day from Havana. Any recommendatiosn for car service would be grealty appreciated as well?

I'm afraid there isn't any beach bars or chairs unless you go all inclusive at one of the exclusive beach hotels. You can access the beach from any street along the Varadero high street. There are plenty of bars on the high... More
