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. Make Playa Ensenada a centerpiece of your Punta Rucia vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Punta Rucia route builder tool.
Playa Ensenada reviews

We were taken to this beach by friends who arranged a day visit to this beautiful beach. Have you ever wondered where local people go when the main beaches are filled by tourists, this is the place..... more »
Calm waters; silky smooth sand; restaurants are reasonable with great food
Very calm beach with silky smooth sand. The vendors have a selection of fresh fish to choose from. We had delicious meals at "La Christana"
