This beach is about an hour away from Holguin and is breathtaking. Great for both kids and adults. The weather was beautiful and the white sandy beach was enjoyed by all.

Have visited the beach three times now and have never been disappointed. The far end of the beach is best for snorkeling. The beach has lovely soft sand.

Stayed at club Amigo and the beaches in Guardalavaca are stunning and clean. Wow factor for sure! Little curly tailed lizards like sunning on the rocks and along the pathways. So very amazing.

Still a lovely walk along the promenade, some repairs have been carried out and this has improved the walkway. Great views with beautiful wood carvings along the way and a good beach to relax and enjoy a swim from.

For outside the hotel restaurants there are not in walking distance from Memories, you will have to go to Guardalavaca, there are many there.
