Santa Lucía, on the northern coast of Camagüey Province, is a wide beach, 21 km long, with fine golden-white sand, bathed by warm, turquoise water that is always calm. Protected by a long coral reef only 2 km from shore, the seabed supports an astonishing variety of marine life. In addition to flora and fauna, there are also sunken ships to explore, including some dating from the 19th century.
Close by, Cayo Sabinal is natural treasure well worth exploring. Once the refuge of pirates, the tiny island offers intimate beaches tucked into beautiful coastal scenery and an abundance of wildlife, virtually untouched by man. Local attractions include the ruins of the San Hilarío Fort and the Colón Lighthouse, one of the oldest working lighthouses in the country.
The area around Santa Lucía is flat, featuring marshlands, lagoons and flocks of flamingoes. Perfect for bike riding.
