Cayo Santa Maria Highlights
If you are seeking refuge from the draining demands of your western lifestyle, stumble further afield and uncover the faraway haven that is Cayo Santa Maria. Its tropical charms enchant frenzied travellers; and encourage relaxation, peace and quiet.
Cayo Santa Maria is a stunningly beautiful and unspoilt group of three connected islands that form part of the Jardines Del Rey archipelago and is the perfect place to unwind and relax.
Well connected, you can fly from the UK via Toronto or Montreal and arrive the same day onto this idyllic island which boasts some of Cuba’s best beachside hotels to suit all budgets. Alternatively, Cayo Santa Maria is a perfect choice to unwind after visiting the enigmatic capital city of Havana or exploring the colonial small cities of Trinidad, Cienfuegos or Santa Clara as the island is connected to the mainland by a road causeway.
The causeway that connects Cayo Santa Maria to the mainland, snakes across the clear shallow waters for 35 miles, before reaching the first of Cayo Santa Maria’s island namely Cay Las Brujas. As you cross the causeway look out for flocks of flamingos and numerous other birdlife as well as aquatic life in the waters below.
The beaches on Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Las Brujas and the third island Cayo Ensenachos will certainly not disappoint and they offer white sandy beaches to relax on and shimmering azure waters for cooling down. Enjoy the amazing underwater world which is the home to a very colourful and diverse marine life and enjoy a range of nautical options with diving, snorkelling, sailing, and catamaran cruises all available.
The islands at Cayo Santa Maria remain one of the most relaxing places to enjoy in Cuba and our recommended beachfront hotels will suit all budgets and tastes and as the island is easily accessible, and a perfect choice to unwind.
