Desembarco del Granma National Park is located in Cuba. It is characterised by uplifted marine terraces and karst topography. They represent significant examples of geomorphologic and physiographic features.

The Desembarco del Granma National Park is said to have been named after the yacht which took Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and Raúl Castro from Mexico to Cuba in 1956, and started the Cuban Revolution. The name translates as "landing of the Granma". The yacht is now on permanent display in the Granma Memorial in Havana.

The Desembarco del Granma National Park was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site during the 23rd session of the World Heritage Committee in Marrakesh, Morocco, on 29 November to 4 December, 1999.
