There are no white or pink sand beaches along the 300-mile Atlantic coast, no turquoise waters — the sea off Guyana is stained a permanent brown by the muddy flow of her many rivers. There are no posh all-inclusive resorts or tourist enclaves of the kind for which some of the islands are famous.
Does Guyana have any beaches?
Guyana’s beaches, to be fair, are not its greatest attraction. Most are out of the way, and there are no beach resorts or beach hotels in the whole country. However, 270 miles of Atlantic coastline and some exotic river beaches are ultimately worth the effort it takes to reach them.
