María Aguilar beach lies south of the city. This beach on Ancón Peninsula completes Trinidad’s historic and cultural offer. It is remarkable for its warm, shallow waters under which lies a rugged seabed teeming with luxuriant life: various kinds of coral, sea fans, sponges, small tropical reef-dwelling fish and different species of chelonians.
Ancón is deemed the largest beach on the south coast of Cuba, with its 4 km. of medium-grain cream-colored sand that slopes gently into a beach of clear blue-green waters.
Sancti Spiritus province is located near the center of the Isle of Cuba, about 350 km. from Havana City. It has one of the most promising areas for tourist development in the island: its southern region, which comprises the municipality of Trinidad. There can be found Ancón Peninsula: a stretch of dry land bordering Casilda’s Inlet. The peninsula begins in a place to the southeast of the town of Trinidad.
Located at the center of the island, the province of Sancti Spíritus has the privilege of being the only territory of the Cuban archipelago where two of the first seven villas were founded at the beginning of the XVI century by the Spanish discoverer, Diego Velázquez: Espíritu Santo and Santísima Trinidad.Both of them were born in 1514, and one of the 14 provinces of the political and administrative division of the Republic of Cuba was named after Espíritu Santo.
