14) Cayo Coco, Cuba
Here is another island paradise with unspoiled seas, just off the northern (northeast) coast of Cuba. This part of the world contains a number of smaller and larger groups of islands, or archipelagos. Cayo Coco belongs to a smaller archipelago, Jardines Del Rey (King’s Garden), so named in 1513 after the King of Aragon and King of Castille, Ferdinand the Catholic. The surrounding coral reef provides the visitor with ideal conditions for scuba diving to depths of up to 40m (just over 131ft); and there are regular and frequent daily tours. The marine life is rich and varied; and the clarity of the water is so stunning that some websites suggest “you’ll feel like [you’re in] an aquarium”. If you don’t want to get into a wet suit and oxygen tank, the white sandy beaches will give you the opportunity to get your feet wet in the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
