Trip Advisor has unveiled the ranking of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. In SECOND place in the list is the magnificent and famous beach of Varadero, 22 km. Of natural beaches with very fine sand and transparent, warm and calm waters, to please body and mind under the Caribbean sun.

The Hicacos Peninsula was sighted in 1508 during a voyage of exploration by the Spaniard Sebastián de Ocampo. For a time, some ships accidentally ran aground on the local sandbanks, or these were used to beach the boats and repair them, hence the origin of the name of Varadero. The documentary references of the place date back to the 16th century.

The foundation date of Varadero dates back to December 1887, since in the mid-nineteenth century Cubans came to spend the summer seasons to enjoy the sea. However, it was the Americans who first recognized the natural benefits of Varadero at the beginning of the last century, where in the 1920s many Cubans and Americans established their residences along the beach after the closure of the resorts. Europeans following the First World War. Then began the transformation of what was a simple fishing village first into a summer resort and then into one of the most famous destinations in the Caribbean.

The first hotel was built in 1915 and bore the name of Varadero, but it is from the 1950s onwards when we witness a first “boom” in the construction of hotels, Varadero, which today houses more than fifty modern and comfortable lodgings, many managed by renowned international chains, these are hotels with an “all inclusive” offer and whose architecture is in harmony with nature.

Undoubtedly the main charm of Varadero is the beach, 22 kilometers long and a strip of very fine white sand with an average width of 700 meters, while the height of the coastal dune is just over a meter. It is known throughout the world as the “Blue Beach” because its sea reflects all the shades of that color, creating an impressive spectacle for the greatest joy of the senses. Its climatic conditions are very advantageous for the stay and enjoyment of holidaymakers at any time of the year, as it combines pleasant temperatures (25º C on average), few days with rain, low humidity and twelve hours of sunshine a day. This is known as the “Varadero effect”.

Synonymous with excellence, Varadero beach stands out for the cleanliness and transparency of the sea, the absence of underwater vegetation and rocks, the smoothness of the underwater slope and the shallow water (it is only 1.80 meters 70 meters from the shore). One of its great attractions is the possibility of practicing nautical activities, such as catamaran trips to nearby islets, jet skis, sport fishing, snorkeling or diving. And also, a visit to the dolphinarium where it is possible to swim with these wonderful creatures.
