Playa Pilar Beach is world-renowned as the best beach in Cuba. Located in one of the best preserved islets in the Cuban archipelago Jardines del Rey (Cayo Guillermo, next to Cayo Coco), this beach is a hidden oasis of calm, fine white sand, lazy coconut palms, crystal clear waters and, facing it, a beautiful island that gives way to the second largest barrier reef in the world.
A tropical paradise to immerse yourself and forget about the rest of the world. Perfect to escape from the routine and relax. There is little tourism infrastructure and the environment is pure jungle, paths and beaches, with only 4-5 resorts that have been settled in the area and provide all the services that the visitor may need, but without disrupting the magic that can only be found in Pilar Beach.
Water sports like scuba diving and windsurfing are outstanding in this area of Cuba, as well as sport fishing (in fact, every year, close to Cayo Guillermo, one of the most important sport fishing competitions in the world is celebrated), canoe routes or hiking.
Enjoying its tranquillity and the beauty of the landscape of Playa Pilar Beach is a luxury and little or nothing has to do with the Caribbean crowd that can be found in other famous tourist spots in Cuba. Pilar Beach is conceived to relax and make the most of your free time doing all those things that we can do because of routines and work. You visit Pilar Beach to give yourself a few days of rest and relaxation, to lie down all day in hammocks on the beach, to swim, float, and sunbathe. To smile every morning and say to yourself that paradise exists.
