Editorial Reviews

Review

What makes this book different is that it covers the whole spectrum from resort  beaches to those with basic accommodation. There is also a comprehensive introduction covering the basics of traveling around Cuba. Highly recommended. John Varley, frequent visitor to Cuba.

No one had yet compiled a comprehensive list of Cuba's playas. Now, these authors, well-known for their previous title on Cuba, have done it and the result is easily consulted, divided as it is in three sections : Best Resort Beaches, Best Cultural Experience and Off-The-Beaten Path. There are, of course more than 30 beaches on La Isla Grande but these will do just fine for a first beach trip. How does it compare with my own choices of Best in Cuba ? We could not have said it better. A must for beach fans, whether walkers, readers, sun-tanners or explorers. Marcos, webmaster cubacasas.net

From the Author

Having written four books about Cuba, it's not surprising that I get a lot of questions about the island. None are more frequent than, "What are the island's best beaches?"  That question poses to problems. First, how do you pick a "best" from the islands thousands of miles of coastline--not to mention the coastline of hundreds of offshore islands that are also part of the nation and each have their own spectacular beaches. Second, what does one mean by the word, "best"?  Clearly, someone who wants to stay in a classy beach resort is going to define "best" differently from someone who wants to mix and mingle with everyday Cubans, and neither will be the same as that of someone who wants to spend time on a beautiful beach that rarely sees a tourist or a Cuban.  It was largely to answer the question of which are Cuba's "best beaches" in each of these categories that we wrote this guide.

No one had yet compiled a comprehensive list of Cuba's most appreciated playas. Now, these authors, well-known for their previous title on Cuba, have done it and the result is easily consulted, divided as it is in three sections : Best Resort Beaches, Best Cultural Experience and Off-The-Beaten Path.

There are, of course more than 30 beaches on La Isla Grande but these will do just fine for a first beach trip. After going through the book, how does it compare with my own choices of Best in Cuba ? We could not have said it better.

Highly recommended and a must for beach fans, whether walkers, readers, sun-tanners or explorers.

Format: Paperback
Surprisingly very little up to date information is available on the diverse range of Cuba's beaches. What makes this book particularly different is that it covers the whole spectrum of All Inclusive resort-type beaches to those with more basic accommodation. There is also a very comprehensive introduction covering the basics of getting to and travelling around Cuba. A manageable size for carrying around and nice photos too! Highly recommended.
