Cayo Sabinal is virgin territory. If you’ve ever wanted to see a Caribbean island before tourism sets-in, then this is the place to go. This photo was taken from the sea just off the coast of Punta Piedra on Cayo Sabinal. It demonstrates how nature pushes its boundaries from flora to coastline. The lush palm trees skirting the sea, basically from where the beach ends, there’s a dense forest of palms. This beach is kilometers and kilometers of “nothing” other than this beauty. Walking along here is simply idyllic…
Punta Piedra on Cayo Sabinal is a popular beach destination on the island. Several wooden cabins have been built using local materials with thatched palm leaf roofs. These buildings have washrooms (no wash basins) and some basic sitting areas if you are visiting this amazing beach. Nobody lives here so the cabins are for anybody’s use.

The plaque commemorating the building of the San Hilario Fortress on Cayo Sabinal says:
“Year of 1849. Queen Isabel II of Spain. Development Board Chaired By Captain General of the Island (Cuba) Federico Roncali. It started in 1847 being Captain General Leopoldo O’Donnell who directed this work by Army Engineers.”
Side note: Isabel II was the queen of Spain 10 October 1830 – 10 April 1904. She was queen regnant of Spain from 1843 until 1868. She came to the throne as an infant, however her succession was disputed by the Carlists, who refused to recognize a female sovereign, leading to the Carlist Wars. The island of Cayo Sabinal became a stronghold of these Carlist separatists and, oddly enough, these barracks where this plaque remains, were used as a base for their actions to topple the Spanish monarchy.
They don’t make them like that anymore…This is the internal workings of the beacon at the Faro Colon lighthouse situated on Cayo Sabinal in Cuba. Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. +160 years old!
