Marea is the only restaurant in Havana with its own private beach. Located in the backyard of one of its owners’ houses in Sante Fe, it sits just above the canals of the Marina Hemingway. A fishing area, you cannot go wrong with the seafood dishes at Marea which are extremely fresh and well prepared. Food aside, the venue is a destination with spectacular views, great cocktails and a beach area suitable for both kids and adults with shallows of soft sand and a trampoline from which to launch into the deep blue. Elsewhere the décor is summery with a touch of the Mediterranean in the white and blue colour palette and red-tiled roofs. A calm and relaxed atmosphere is complemented by chill-out music and completed by attentive and friendly service. While away the afternoon on one of Marea’s sun loungers overlooking the ocean, sip on daiquiris and indulge in malanga fritters and fried fish. As the day comes to a close, light up a Habano and watch the sun go down in true Cuban style.
