Coral Beach, or Playa Coral, is a popular destination for shore snorkeling, about half way between Varadero and Mantanzas. The barrier reef lies just off shore beneath the pristine, azure waters, teeming with colorful fish. The clear waters allow for visibility up to 20 metres (65 feet) granting ample opportunity to observe the 300 species of fish that are said to inhabit the reef. While you are free to venture out on your own, Ecotur professional guides are available for a modest fee and can take you further off shore than you are likely to manage on your own. To book a guided tour, enter through the Flora y Fauna Reserve or check out the Laguna de Maya nearby. There is also a boat rental agency and a restaurant on site.
