Locality
“Tha Santa María Beach is located on the northeastern coast of Havana in the direction of Matanzas. It has been through the years the best known of the group formed by the Beaches of Eastern Havana. It is located 35 km from the Historic Center of the Capital of the Island of Cuba, between the Mégado and Boca Ciega beaches. The Santa María del Mar Beach is excellent, it has an area of ​​approximately 10 km of fine white sand, its waters are warm turquoise blue. It has an infrastructure designed primarily for tourism and recreation of bathers among which are an International Clinic, Las Terrazas Shopping Center, Amigos Tropicoco, the Atlantic, Villa Los Marinos, Los Pinos, Monte El Valle and Las Terraces. The Santa María del Mar Beach is so extensive that you can avoid the concentration of bathers by moving away a little from the center, and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the natural landscape. Nearby are other beaches with similar characteristics such as Guanabo, Tarara, Bacuranao and Venetian. Because it is an urbanized beach, there are a large number of food and light beverages sales stalls, as well as private homes that provide accommodation for visitors.”
