Santa Lucía Beach resort turns out to be the main tourist destination in the province of Camagüey and a place blessed by nature. This important tourist destination is 110 kilometers from the capital city. Santa Lucia Beach stretches for 22 kilometers in an area that is highly prized for the extension of its sand strip and the feeling of privacy it provides.
It is distinguished by its white sands populated with coconut trees, the typical color of its waters and the proximity of one of the most extensive coral formations in the world. These features differentiate Santa Lucia Beach from other beaches in the northern Cuban coast.
Santa Lucia Beach is quite isolated from other tourist attractions in the country, is in a natural state in much of its extension, and, in addition, its impressive coral reef is located just 2 km from the sands of the Beach, becoming a primary objective for tourist who love diving and snorkeling.
Santa Lucia has 35 sites for the development of diving and water sports, where you can see sunken ships from the 19th century. On the other hand, the spectacle of the so-called bull sharks that inhabit the mouth of the Bay of Nuevitas, a few kilometers away, is fascinating. The writer Enrique Cirules, an expert on Ernest Hemingway’s work, tells that the author of the “Old Man and the Sea”, traveled that area on board “El Pilar” yacht very often, both in hunting or fishing corridors, and in the search for German submarines during World War II, which inspired the worldwide autobiographical novel “Islands in the Gulf”.
Other popular activities of this destination are the famous dance and diving lessons, catamaran rides or water bikes, beach volleyball and the possibility of hiking on the beach.
Among the cultural attractions is Santa Lucia Festival, a spectacular party in which Cuban cultural traditions are represented by nautical, sports and gastronomic activities, where fun is the main course. In addition, Santa Lucia Nautical Festival is highly demanded, which is a competitive event with two editions a year, ideal for lovers of water sports. Among its proposals are the nautical parade, competitions, fashion, modeling of figures in the sand and a large closing party.
