Ranchon Playa Flamenco
A restaurant « beach ranchon » style with a nice view of the beach located in the central area of Cayo Coco, Playa Flamenco. This restaurant was under construction when we first visited this sight in December 2010. Since they have built a dining room, a bar, a toilet, installed a dozen of sunbeds with cushions and several chairs.
The Ranchon Playa Flamenco is located few steps from the hotel Pestana Cayo Coco to the west, and the hotel Melia Jardines del Rey in the east. The public access to Playa Flamenco brings you directly to Ranchon Playa Flamenco. Follow this sign at the roundabout in Playa Flamenco.
Playa Flamenco is a beach facing northwest of 2.5 km made of dense sand, ideal for walkers. This beach is the most recent in terms of hotel development in Cayo Coco. It's a nice beach, but with several long coral plates to the dismay of bathers!
The first hotel to open its door was the Memories Flamenco in 2011, followed by the Pestana Cayo Coco in 2013 and finally the Melia Jardines del Rey (2014-2015). There are more rooms on this beach than any other beaches of Cayo Coco. The new hotels in Cuba are often double in size than the old hotels and they are always 3-storey.
This restaurant, under the management of the Cuban group Palmares, offers a menu of grilled lobster, shrimp, fish, pork, chicken, etc. with several choices of beers and drinks. The restaurant is open daily from 10am to 5pm (bar) and 12 to 3:30pm (lunch). You can find the menu served at the Ranchon Playa Flamenco in our photo album (see link below).
