Located on Cuba's Cayo Guillermo island, Pilar Beach is a stunning expanse of long, sandy shorelines that offer a picturesque view of the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. This iconic beach was named after Ernest Hemingway's boat, Pilar 1 (Uno). Known for its captivating beauty, Pilar Beach is surrounded by the second-largest coral reef in the world. Notably, it boasts one of the Caribbean's largest dunes, estimated to reach up to 16 meters high. Studies indicate that these dunes are among the oldest in northern Cuba, dating back to the Holocone period.
