The Playa Santa Lucia belongs
to the province of Camagüey, at 650 km from La Havana
and at 110 km from the provincial capital. It is located
on the Atlantic Ocean, more specifically in the Canal Viejo
(old channel) of the Bahamas.
The Santa Lucia beaches run for 20 km with 30 meters width
of sand, offering the second largest coral barrier of the
world. Its extensive beaches seem like a natural swimming
pool of 21 km large by 200 meters wide. Its proximity to
the Sabana-Camagüey cays puts Santa Lucia in an excellent
position for tourism development.
The Santa Lucia coral barrier extends for more than 400
km towards the west, going as far as Varadero and also protecting
the northern cays (Cayo Sabinal, Romano, Guajaba, Guillermo
and Santa Maria).
