You are collected from your hotel between 8 and 8.30am and taken to the boat moored near the Brisas Hotel in Playa Santa Lucia. On our way to Playa Bonita at Cayo Sabinal in the Jardines del Rey Archipelago we will stop for 10 minutes to view the starfish bed, where you’ll have a photo opportunity for 1000s of starfish that use this area to breed. The Playa Bonita on Cayo Sabinal is a virgin beach, totally devoid of tourism, which looks like something from a TV Ad. Right next to the beach, about 100 meters inland there’s a natural lagoon and Flamingo Sanctuary. You’ll need a telephoto or zoom lens in order to catch these majestic creatures up close. Your day will be spent discovering the uninhabited coastline, snorkeling (equipment provided) and lazing around on the sun loungers on this pristine beach. There’s a small palm hut shack on the beach with restrooms. From here you’ll be served refreshments and lunch (included). Don’t worry about taking drinks as they’re available both on the boat and the beach.
Highlights of this Cayo Sabinal Excursion?
Of course, the beach is simply stunning. Few times in your life will you have the opportunity to see a coastline as virgin and untouched as this. The Beach resort of Playa Santa Lucia can be seen in the distance, yet you feel like you’re on another planet. Snorkeling from here is sublime, the fish and marine life seem to disregard your presence entirely, and you actually feel like your one of them! Wandering down the beach can bring a few surprises, aside from the flamingo colony there are Iguanas, crabs and even dolphins close to the coast. It’s simply an “ecodream” you could say.
What NOT to forget
- Mosquito repellant
- Hat or T-Shirt (there’s little if any shade)
- Sandals if you intend to scout the beach (pine needles mainly)
- Camera (bring a ziplock bag)
The Cayo Sabinal Seafari from Playa Santa Lucia Hotels is a sublime experience and ideal for people of all ages.
