If you travel to Cuba and visit Varadero, the best option we recommend you is snorkel or dive in Beach Coral, we have a group of highly experienced professionals every year we serve more than 2000 clients who had never done the activity. We wait for you on your vacation, you will not regret it I assure you. Snorkeling at Coral Beach or Coral Beach: The snorkeling at Coral Beach or Playa Coral is from the edge of the beach, where there have a depth of less than 1 meter, for beginners we impacted an initiation class where they are taught how to swim and the basics of the equipment . Beginners and inexperienced will have a life jacket, with this all the time they will be on the surface. You will swim approximately 80 meters from the edge until you are on the coral barrier. This activity is from about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Where you can feed the fish with your own hands and even touch them. This excursion if you want this split in 2 Parts. The second part is the Saturn Cave. Saturn Cave: It is a natural swimming pool where fresh water and salt water flows, with formations of stalactites and stalagmites. There is a lake and two galleries where you can find blind shrimp and fish. It has parts where its depth is of 1 meter to 2 meters, as also it has 22 meters of depth in its deepest part but it is so crystalline the water that can be seen to the bottom. You can only do the snorkeling activity as it is very small and deep which is not ideal for diving.

Went here on an organised trip. This was beautiful-the coral and the fish were amazing. I'm not a confident swimmer and I had a guide with me all the time with a life ring to hold to. I would highly recommend it.

The beach was dirty with cigarette butts everywhere! The snorkeling was great. There were lots of fish, coral and plants abound. The was a small refreshment stand and public restrooms but I did not buy food or ise the restrooms.

The beach was clam and warm. It was perfect to swim in. The sea was so clear! Some parts of the beach had a few shells but other parts are clear and sandy.

The coral was outstanding, the fish plentiful and varied. We arranged the trip while staying at the Royalton. We were very impressed with the care and attention to water safety which was given to us.
