Descriptionhotels map

This tiny island off Cuba's north coast is home to one of Cuba's few small, beach hotels and is popular with independent travellers as well as scuba diving enthusiasts. Visitors looking for peace and quiet away from Cuba's more commercial resorts may find Cayo Levisa to be just what they are looking for while others might find the island somewhat too quiet


The land facing side of the island is made up of mangrove swamp while the entire ocean facing side is one long, white, sandy beach.


There's not a whole lot to do on Cayo Levisa which, for most people who visit, is a large part of its attraction. Scuba diving can be arrange locally together with snorkelling trips to the nearby reef.


There is just the 1 hotel restaurant on the island
