The cayo Levisa is an amazing beach only reachable by boat. We booked a day there for 39CUC and it is really an adventure. After 1h of bus, we had to wait one hour under the sun for the next boat, what was actually already full do after loads of discussion and the bus refusing to go back to vinales... More

If you want a beach day , take this day trip from vinales. Beautiful sands and clear water. Well organized, however if I was to.do it again, I would choose a la carte or the sandwich deal. The lunch deal.which was buffet style was disappointing whereas the restaurant looked great. The sandwich deal was ample and delicious according to a... More

If you sometimes dream about small hotel on paradise island sorrounded by turquoise see this is the place. 30 minutes from the mainland is one of the Cuban's gems with white sand, clear water relatively nice cabanas and limited number of visitors. And when you really feel like an angel - totally happy and free - it comes the time... More

Takes 1 hour bus trip from Vinjales and 40 min with boat to get there. Well worth it. The Beach is stunning and NOT crowded. You will have your own peace. The restaurant in nice. Hotels organize day trips but I would spend 1-2 nights there easily.

A stunning beach where you can see sea stars in the water without having to snorkle. There are many sun beds along the beach that you can use free of charge. I found the facilities better here than at Cayo Jutias as there were several restaurants and bars plus toilets to use. I came with Cubantur so my luch was... More

If you don't get to stay here, at least visit for the day, walk along the beach to find your own deserted desert island and swim naked in the sea.

We were supposed to stay here two nights, but after one day we decided to leave early. Location: this island is remote. To get there you need to drive the worst road in cuba. No small towns close to it to visit if weather not good enough for sunbathing. You pay for secure parking. But when we got our car... More

Tiny tropical island with white beach and few tourists. Accessible only by boat, the island has some accomodations available (book early), a couple of restaurants and bars, diving center and some shops. Very small and not overly expensive. As a day trip from Vinales, it is a nice place to relax

This is a beautifull island with nice white beaches and bungalows on the beach. Especially when you walk all the way to the east side of the island you have almost a private white beach. Great. It's a bit a shame that all theses day tourist come every day and filling up the area. The food in the restaurants is... More

I went to Cayo Levisa on a day trip from Vinales. The best part was the drive from Vinales through the countryside. Then we took the ferry. The landscape it's amazing. The island it's a paradise but the full day can be boring if you don't do snorkelling. The bar it's dead, no music, no atmosphere. The food isn't great.... More
