Like the rest of the Santa
Clara's littoral, the fauna of Elguea is mainly constituted
of remarkable birds with beautiful plumage such as, seagulls
and pelicans. Its marine fauna is of invaluable richness.
At only a hundred meters from its coasts passes the Santa
Lucia de Cuba coral barrier, the second largest in the world
where, in its depths, inhabit a great variety of mollusks,
cobos, seafood and many multicolor tropical fish.
