Maria La Gorda

This beach was named for a woman (Fat Maria) who was supposedly sed on shore here by pirates, who returned here now and again to visit her between forays. Located on the Guanahacabibes Peninsula, which has been declared a world preserve of the biosphere, Maria la Gorda Beach has left its rather raucous past behind and is now famed for its senerity and sence of privacy.

The beautiful beach, with fine sand, is five miles (eight km) long. The seabed here is one of the richestin Cuba in terms of biodiversity and has the largest colony of black coral (Antipathes spp.) in the archipelago. At its 39 scuba-diving sites, you can see gardens of gorgonians, sponges, a long wall with grottoes, abnudant marine fauna and artefacts showing that both pirate and merchant ships used to anchor here in the past.

Location and How to Get There

Maria La Gorda Beach is on Corrientes Bay, on the Guanahacabibes Peninsula, 93 miles (150 km) west of the city of Pinar del Rio and 188 miles (304 km) from Havana.

it's called La Muralla because it's on the corner of de Plaza Veija and Calle Muralla. It's actually a micro-brewery.

Wrong location.


¿Esto que es? parece un Renault Gordini.

i think if you spend only one hour here you will forget all your pain

seguro que camina con petroleo!

Seguramente que tienes razón porque no recuerdo la localización exacta... solo estuve en Gibara una mañana pero me parecio un sitio para volver.
