Playa Santa Maria del Mar is a pleasant non-touristy beach, but packed with
Habaneros at weekends. It has white sand with remains of coral and shells. Its
waters are crystal clear with different shades of green and blue. Underwater,
Santa María shows a beautiful landscape of coral
reefs, shellfish and lively colored fish. It is an experience to dive in these
waters, due to the abundance of the fauna and its irregular landscape.

nice time. In the little town you can find many different service places like
