Experience Santa Lucia

Fast facts
  • Snorkel in the second-largest coral reef formation
  • Explore the winding streets, colourful houses and restored monuments of the old town
  • Catch sightings of pink flamingo colonies in beautiful lagoons

Relax along the pristine beaches of Santa Lucia and unwind on tranquil islands that are virtually untouched. A long coral reef formation off the coast, the second largest in the world, offers the opportunity to admire fascinating marine life with excellent diving sites to explore. The reef helps to shelter the beach, making the crystal clear waters calm and perfect for a leisurely swim. Venture into the town centre to learn more about Camaguey's fascinating history full of battles and pirates. Or simply wander around its labyrinth-like streets and brightly-coloured houses. With a well-preserved ecosystem, nature lovers can spot colonies of pink flamingos in beautiful lagoons and iguanas among verdant landscapes. Amateur anglers can challenge themselves with a deep-sea fishing expedition with the opportunity to catch fish like mahi-mahi, barracuda and even tuna.
