Cayo Coco
There is 17 mls of archetypal Caribbean beaches of near-white, fine coral sand sloping very gently into warm, clear water. 2½-ml-long Playa Pilar on Guillermo boasts the highest dunes in the Caribbean. There is no shopping outside what is on offer in the hotels themselves.
During the daytime the activities are almost exclusively beach-based activities with virtually every water sport imaginable, there is scuba diving at a dozen or more offshore reefs. Great area for bird-watching, and there is also the El Bago Nature Park. The nightlife here offers nothing outside the hotels which offer full entertainment programmes. For food there are a few options including a local restaurant in a cave which caters for tourist parties, there is a handful of barbecue bars but otherwise it's the hotels again. Locally caught shellfish are well worth trying. Food everywhere in Cuba is restricted in choice and often of comparatively poor quality, definitely not a destination for gourmets.
