Yachts Destinations, All places in Cuba

The fascinating island of Cuba boasts natural beauties and rich historic and cultural background. It has a unique atmosphere that comes from the combination of its colonial past and its Amerindian and African roots. The island is surrounded by multiple islets spread across the coral reefs, white sandy beaches and deserted creeks. Cuba is all a sailor could wish for due to its favorable climate, steady winds, natural beauty and hospitable people. The whole coast and off-lying islands are fully accessible except the prohibited area in the vicinity of the infamous "Bay of Pigs", or Playa Giron.
