Bay of Pigs.


 

The Bay of Pigs is at 150km from Varadero, known for its calmed, warm crystal clear waters.

 

While on winter the sea is very often effected by the cold fronts and the diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking is canceled on Varadero’s area we can always drive to the Bay of Pigs on the other side of the island and do the best diving on very calmed water. The Bay of Pigs is sheltered by the island so the north wind doesn’t affect the sea conditions.
