MARIA LA GORDA BEACH
Located in the far western area of the province of Pinar del Río, its crystalline waters are an invitation for spending the hours in an attractive spot. A good part of the black coral reserves can be found there as well as many varieties of fish, crustaceans and sponges.
An important detail favouring the beach is that right in this area, in the cove of Corrientes is the International Scuba Diving Centre (Centro Internacional de Buceo), also called Maria La Gorda Scuba Diving Centre. This centre pinpoints a total of 35 diving points, where jewfish, barracudas, lobsters, rays, parrot fish and a whole wealth of the stunning Caribbean fauna welcome the visitor. In the midst of the unequalled silence of the depths, there are impressive coral formations as well as majestic underwater grottoes.
