Idyllic María la Gorda is one of the most unspoilt places in Cuba. Its empty beaches backed by coconut trees extend for miles facing the turquoise sea, a far cry from the island's crowded tourist resorts. An international scuba-diving centre is based here, organising dives for visitors. For non-divers, the family atmosphere and lovely walks are more than reason enough to come here. Watch out for jellyfish.
