Playa Sirena (west beaches)

Playa Sirena (Siren beach) is a spectacular beach located at the western tip of Cayo Largo. This is the widest beach of the island and the only one with palm trees providing lots of natural shade. It stretches for 2 km in an area protected from the wind and surf.

Unlike the hotels’ beaches, the sea at Playa Sirena is always calm. On 2007, they closed the water sports center located in the hotels’ zone and brought all the equipment to Playa Sirena. So this is now the only water sports center on the island, and guests from any hotel can use the non-motorized equipment as part of their all-inclusive package.

Services found at Playa Sirena include: Bars, a restaurant (ranchon type), a water sports center, a massage hut, palapas (beach umbrellas), lounge chairs (2 CUC), a souvenirs shop, and a holding pen to swim with dolphins. Note that non-motorized water sports is the only service included, other services (chairs, bar, restaurant, massage, etc.) is not part of your all-inclusive package, but the prices are very reasonable.

Note that naturism is not allowed at Playa Sirena, but the stretch of beaches east of Playa Sirena (toward Playa Paraiso) is clothing optional.

Playa Sirena is also a popular spot for excursionists coming from the main island of Cuba on a day-tour, so it can get more crowed sometimes and feel more “commercial”.

Prices are in CUC.

Every time we go to Playa Sirena restaurant, we like to order their lobster plate, it is simply delicious!
The plate of giant prawns is succulent too!
