Rancho Luna

Rancho Luna beach14 km. from Cienfuegos lays this small beautiful beach bathed by the Caribbean Sea, having a half-rounded form, fine sands and quiet waters. Its especially uneven coastal shelf, inhabited by a thriving sea life and plenty of lovely coral formations at low and medium depths, has several ideal diving sites at Ensenada de Barreras and Las Playitas. Deeper immersions display a broken surface rich in sponges, sea fans and coral beds.

Some diving centers operate in the area, such as Faro Luna, Guajimico y Whale Shark, featuring beginners’ courses, day and nighttime immersions around sunken ships and reefs, as well as catamaran, aquabike and kayac rides.
