Yes there are. Coral reefs that almost rise right out of the sea surround the entire island and make it a paradise for divers and snorkellers. The island itself consists of an elongated mountain chain with its base in the depths of the Caribbean. One of the world’s deepest sea troughs, at 7243 metres, is located 60 km off the coast of Santiago de Cuba. The largest and most stunning beaches are situated in the north, with Varadero beach being the best of them all.
