This highway was built on the El Pedraplén (causeway), almost 50 kilometeres in length and with international renown due to its respect for the nature surrounding it, and which connects Cayo Santa María to the rest of the keys that surround it, a unique journey on which you’ll have the impression of floating over the sea on your way to the key.

This incredible islet a surface of almost 18km2 and some 10 kilometers of beaches of the highest quality. These beaches are the reason why the area is often referred to as the ‘White Rose of the King’s Garden’, as in them, you’ll find a combination of fine white sands and crystalline waters which in no way devalue those of the first islet to go for ‘sun and beaches’, Varadero, and which make this islet the second-best place to go when choosing a place to lie down and take in the sun, giving this area an element of prestige.

Discover the most beautiful beaches in the north of Cayo Santa María, among which are Perla Blanca, Las Caletas, Cañón and Cuatro Punta, which are without a shadow of a doubt be the best options, as they all have the characteristics fitting to what you’d find on a Caribbean postcard.

What’s more, this paradise islet does not only offer you all types of facilities, but also many natural alternatives, especially in the south, where a landscape of lush vegetation dominates. So, if you decide to cross the most untamed part of the key, with local flora and fauna in their best state of conservation, observation and use, you will have the opportunity to delve into an incomparable environment.
