Villa Cabo San Antonio
Villa Gaviota Cabo San Antonio is located on Las Tumbas beach at the tip of the Guanahacabibes Peninsula in Pinar del Río province. The area was designated a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1987, and the category of National Park was added in late 2001. As a National Park it includes a total extension of 39 830 hectares (23 880 on land and the remaining 15 950 ha in the adjacent marine area).
The area features interesting archaeological sites, the Roncali lighthouse, the Cueva del Francés (a cave with aboriginal wall paintings) and other caves such as Musulmanes or Caleta del Resguardo where ceramic discoveries have been made.
During colonial times, the sparsely-populated area was an ideal stop for pirates, corsairs and buccaneers; today you can still hear local legends of hidden treasure in Guanahacabibes caves and forests, some even linked to sinister murders.
If you’re looking for off the beaten path, private, practically virgin territory you’ll find all of that and more in Cabo San Antonio.
