it comes to tourism, the Isle of Youth is an excellent place offering
multiple possibilities. Sirena and Bibijagua
beaches are two of them. The fame of the latter has to do with the
typical blackish coloration of its sands, owing to the erosive action
of the sea beating against the marble rocks.
More than 30 immersion sites can be found in the waters surrounding
the island. The international diving center of "El Colony",
located in Punta Francés, is a must for the lovers of natural
wonders. The underwater world of this region is characterized by
coral reefs of extraordinary beauty and caves having a great diversity
of marine flora and fauna species. Immersions can take place during
the day or night. One can enjoy sub-aquatic photography or
water sports in the facilities of the resort, which can accommodate
15 boats and offers services of fresh water, electricity, fuel,
La Fe, second city in importance in the Isle of Youth, is renowned
for its mineral and medicinal springs, associated to cracks in the
metamorphic rocks that abound in the area.
The keys Iguana or Rosario, the mangrove-tree communities, beautiful
spots with a thick vegetation over rocky hills, luxuriant palm trees,
and other elements of the almost virgin nature of the island alternate
along the territory to charm the amazed visitors.
