Welcome to our website dedicated to Cayo Guillermo, online since 2006.
Cayo Guillermo is a small and quiet island with an area of 13 square kilometers, which is part of the « Jardines del Rey » (King's Gardens) archipelago, which itself is part of the « Sabana-Camaguey » archipelago.
This archipelago consists of over 2,500 islands and islets (cays) and is located off the Atlantic coast of Cuba in the province of Ciego de Avila.
This destination is known for its five kilometers of pristine beaches of fine white sand. The sea is calm, shallow and crystal clear waters of a beautiful turquoise blue. It is an oasis of peace for nature lovers, beach and relaxation. Cayo Guillermo is home of the most beautiful beach in this area of Cuba, Playa Pilar!

The archipelago is also connected to the main island of Cuba by a 27 kilometer long causeway into the se. Note that the bus transfer from the Jardines del Rey airport to the hotels of Cayo Guillermo is about 45 minutes.
