Drive or get a bus to Gibara, north of the city of Holguin, then hop aboard a truck to drive the 18 km west to Caletone. Technically tourists are not allowed on the trucks, so rental car may be the way to go, or hired taxi.

A long barrier reef along the town of Caletone, a small fishing village, with breaks and bends that allow some sectiony lefts and rights to peel. Constant wind swell in the summer months allow some consistent sloppy peaks to be ridden but is better on possible winter groundswells.
Caletone is a great little town, packed in the summer with vacationing Cubans and deserted in the winter months. Saw waves there in July, not sure of conditions in the winter but it looks like it has potential. Faces NE so should catch winter swells that get through the Bahamian chain. Plus your in Cuba! Cool people and fascinating history.
