Playa Ensenada, Punta Rucia

(3.6/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Lay back and relax in the crystal clear waters at Playa Ensenada. The beach is popular with the locals who come to enjoy the warm, shallow water. Move over to the western end of the beach for a more tranquil experience and less-crowded sands with a mountain backdrop. Alternatively, the eastern section of the beach offers a livelier experience, with shacks selling food and visitors enjoying rum cocktails.
