Playa Megano is often mentioned in the same breath as another beach of considerable quality – Playa Ensenachos. Both are found on the small Cuban islet of Cayo Ensenachos. As for what makes Playa Megano and Playa Ensenachos so notable, they offer the soft white sand and warm turquoise water that is typical of the best Caribbean beaches. Plus, since the drop-offs are extremely gradual at these delightful crescents of sand, it is possible to wade out hundreds of feet. Perhaps the only drawbacks to Playa Megano and Playa Ensenachos is the fact that they are only accessible to certain people. More specifically, those people who either stay at the resident resort or pay the resort’s rather hefty day-use fee. Of course, if you fall into one of these categories, you’ll benefit from the relative seclusion that these beaches offer.

Cayo Ensenachos is one of many small islets that comprise the Herradura Keys off the north coast of mainland Cuba. A rather exclusive retreat, the island is a playground for guests of the only resident hotel – the Iberostar Ensenachos (pictured). This upscale all-inclusive resort blends in well with its pristine surroundings, thanks in part to height restrictions, and offers different atmospheres that cater to specific tastes and preferences. There is a “Park” section for families, a “Spa” section that is adults only, and an area with 46 luxury villas. Apart from the villas, the accommodations come in the form of rooms and suites that are housed in colonial-style bungalows. Regardless of the guest unit in question, Iberostar Ensenachos guests can expect to enjoy a healthy array of amenities. Buffet and a la carte restaurants combine to present Iberostar Ensenachos guests with a satisfying variety of dining experiences, and the Lobby Bar offers live music every night. Add in everything else that the resort has to offer, and it only becomes more clear that it can be ideal for fun and relaxing Cuba beach vacations.
