This is a lovely beach, just out of Trinidad. We traveled out in the early evenings and swam until the sun set. It was a beautiful sunset and great to wait until later in the afternoon to get into the water and out in that sun.

Beautiful beach to soak in the Caribbean sun. Take a taxi colectivo from the city center-this is basically carpooling with others and paying 5 CUC per head (4 people max), otherwise private taxis can be more expensive. It's only about a 45 minute drive away so you won't need a nice car to get there. These taxi colectivo drivers can... More

An easy 15 km cycle from Trinidad through the valley, great fun. Hire a bike and amble down there, (1 cuc to park the bike) take a picnic, plenty of drink, and chill out away from the city

I like Cuban beaches, but this one is my favorite: white sand, palms, clear water and beautiful sunset is unforgettable

This beach is lovely and miles long - it's huge. lots of palapas and loungers to rent. Several beach bars that all seemed to be out of Cristal; some were out of beer totally. We took a cab from Trinidad and were just here for the day. It looks like a pleasant enough place to stay, but there isn't much... More

Yes, it's a pretty beach, but that is all. The hotels there are inclusive and you cannot enter unless you are a guest. There's a small restaurant tucked among them where you can get a decent meal and sit, with some beach chairs in front on the sand. Arrive early to get those. Verdero Beach is far better.

It is quite easy to get to Ancon beach from Trinidad by taxi, although it does cost about 18 CUC each way, so it isn't cheap. We went quite early and got some sun beds and an umbrella. This cost 2 CUC each, so pretty cheap. The beach got busier as the day went on, but it wasn't uncomfortably so.... More

Get there early in the morning to be amazed by an empty white sand, clear water beach. Grab a drink from the shanty bar, lay back, and relax. Don't hesitate to negotiate with the parking guy and pay when you leave!

If you visit Trinidad, I am sure you won' t miss this lovely historical province, you should enjoy yourself at least half day at Ancon Beach. You can also make a daily tour by a private taxi for 40 cuc (pick up from your Casa) including a short visit to Mirador viewpoint and than a visit to the ruins at... More
