Cayo Santa Maria Cuba

Las Brujas and Santa Maria Cayos

Las Brujas and Santa Maria Cayos-together with Fragoso, Cobos, Ensenachos and Frances Cayos-just off the northern coast of Villa Clara Province, constitute an island paradise with over ten and a half miles (17 km) of beaches and virgin nature that are gradually being opened to tourism.

Called "the white rose of the Jardines del Rey Archipelago" , Santa Maria is the last and largest of the cayos. Together with Las Brujas and Ensenachos Cayos, it is linked to terra firma by an impressive stone causeway. Santa Maria is 5 square miles (13 square km) in size. It has over six and a half miles (11 km) of beaches of excellent quality, plus a wealth of flora and fauna which can be seen during tours inlands

On both Cayos are large numbers of endemic plants and animals.
