Little Coral Island in the Sea...

This little Island is just a tiny spit of an Island...maybe maximum three or four Km wide...and about 28 Kms long...it is a part of the Canarreos archipelago which is Cuban Terrotory...it is relatively close to Isla de la Juventud and is due North of the Cayman Islands.

When I first set eyes on the beach I couldnt believe my eyes...it just went on for mile after mile and the sand was white and soft..mostly coral I guess..absolutely GORGEOUS!

Its another quiet little retreat from the Chaos that can be our Western World..

I have spent I guess about three weeks there....and have explored a little..

Both times that I have been..the weather has been absolutely tremendous...sunny day after sunny day.The average annual percipitation is minimal.

The Island was hit by a Category 4 hurricane in 2001 but has recovered Im told.

If you're a sun worshiper and you like it quiet...then I think that you would like Cayo Largo very much!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Amazing beach...beautiful white sand and great surf!

    Cuba is high on my list of places for my next trip. Thanks for stopping by some of my Argentina pages. I was there in November, so possibly the same weather in the shoulder season, but for me it was spring.

    An interesting little page Greggor! I've always wanted another go at Cuba since my one and only visit to Cayo Coco in 1999.

    Sounds like you are a "sun worshipper!" The Beach does look lovely though, can understand people enjoying this area.
