Playa Pilar, Cayo Guillermo

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Cayo Guillermo
Traverse an elevated walkway as it guides you across shoreline grasses to Playa Pilar. Dense, powdery sands make this beach easy to walk along. Bring along your snorkel gear and explore the bay, or visit the island and its surrounding reef. The beach features a restaurant and bar where you can take in the tropical view. Consider bringing a beach umbrella, as there is limited natural shade, although you can rent beach chairs or take advantage of a few shaded shelters on the sand.

  • The view is insane. And the sand... like powdered sugar! There is currently some construction going on but that is to be expected given the recent storms. Highly recommend a visit!  more »
  • Never see a sand like this! Is like flour! I spend a day there and it was magnificent!! We recommend this beach to all travellers who visit Cayo Guillermo or Cayo Coco!  more »
