Just west of Cayo Coco is Cayo Guillermo, a small isle of merely 13 km2 of surface which was immortalized by Novel Prize Ernest Hemingway and his work “Islands in the Stream”, when he described how green and promising this place looked to him. Cayo Guillermo is probably the number one sport fishing destination in Cuba. The deep-sea fishing facilities are good, and several freshwater lakes on the mainland are within commuting distance. The mangroves off the south coast of Cayo Guillermo are home to pink flamingos and pelicans, and there's a great diversity of tropical fish and crustaceans on the key's Atlantic reef. Playa Pilar is a lovely white beach near the west end of Cayo Guillermo, considered the most beautiful one of the archipelago Sabana-Camagüey, have a total length of four kilometers and the scenic value is reinforced by the existence of other natural elements, like the highest dunes in the Caribbean, which reach up to 15 meters.
