Marea del Portillo is on a cove with an excellent dark-sand beach. There are 17 scuba-diving sites in the area, with attractions that include an old sunken galleon with 36 cannon and another ship from Spanish Admiral Cervera's squadron which was sunk during one of the wars of independence which Cuba waged against Spain in the 1800s. The coral reef is very beautiful, with Staghorn Coral (Acropora cervicornis), Common Sea Fans (Gorgonia spp.), other gorgonians and a wide range of exotic fish.

Best time to visit
December through April, is also the most popular time. The weather is at its coolest and driest during these months, yet it\'s still far warmer than North America and Europe.
In the spring and fall, it\'s off-seasons and this can mean fewer hotel amenities; some hotels may be closed entirely for repairs. There are, however, benefits to traveling in the off-seasons: lack of crowds and prices that tumble by up to 25%.
