Located in the north coast of Cuba, the Cayo Santa María road, known as El Pedraplén, is an amazing journey over the Atlantic Ocean. The road is asphalted and connects Cayo Santa María to the main Island.
El Pedraplén is 57.3 km long. The road leads straight into the sea. It links Caibarién, a city in the Villa Clara province (in the main island) and Cayo Santa María, an island off Cuba's north central coast in the Jardines del Rey archipelago. The road stretches out into the blue ocean, perched on top of a long wall of stone, and at times you genuinely feel you're driving on water; it takes quite a while for the first signs of land to appear on the horizon. The road was completed in 1999.
