Ancón Beach: Beautiful Attraction of Sand, Sun and Culture in Cuba's Trinidad Village

A wonderful white-sand beach and close runner-up to the more spectacular beaches of Cuba, attractive Ancón has one huge advantage: It's just minutes from one of the country's true treasures, Trinidad, and perfectly positioned for those who'd like a bit of colonial culture with their sun and sand (or vice versa). With good diving and one very nice resort hotel, it's sure to be built up soon.

At Playa Ancón and Playa Maria Aquilar you can find fascinating milelong coastal sections with fine sand, a beach paradise and the nearby unique colonial museum city Trinidad. Excursions are possible into the nearby tropical mountains "Topes de Collantes", to the pearl of the south "Cienfuegos" with its popular sites rich in history and lots more...your holiday will be an active success!

A bathing holiday at the Peninsula Ancón offers next to a dream beach the combination of culture and especial excursions. The beach of Trinidad, situated at the southcoast of Cuba, is on a land tongue, which is surrounded by the Caribbean sea on one side and at the other side by mangrove bays.

You can find there only 3 hotels and from the bell tower of the Hotel Brisas or from the roof of the Hotel Ancon you got a wide and gorgeous view over the bays and up to the far away mountains, which surround the 18km away colonial city Trinidad. At the other side you can see the azure sea and the milelong sandy beaches in front of the hotel.

Activities include lazing in the sun, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and other water sports; seafaris and excursions to nearby cays; deep-sea and bottom fishing; tours of the oldest part of Trinidad and of its surrounding area, including Sugarmill Valley and Topes de Collantes, in a large area of parks and natural preserves; excursions to Cienfuegos; visits to beaches along the road to that city; and trips to other tourist resorts in the archipelago.

For evening entertainment, there are many recreational options which can be combined with the offers in Trinidad.
