Best Cozumel beaches!
There are roughly 3 types of beaches in Cozumel. The first type of beaches are the white, sandy beaches at the western part of Cozumel. The waters are very clear, the waves are calm, excellent for swimming, but not so much for snorkeling, since every movement in the sea will make that the sand of the bottom of the sea goes up, and makes it impossible to sea whatever…
A popular all inclusive Beach Club with an original Mexican Caribbean atmosphere, located at a white sandy mile long beach. Lots of activities, like snorkel equipment, ocean kayaks, lockers, private beachside tables with umbrellas, beach chairs, lounge beds, swim up pool bar, fresh water showers, changing rooms, beach volleyball, ping pong, hammocks, separate swimming area etc.
Sunset beach is a sandy beach close to the centre of San Miguel Cozumel, so perfect for people who don’t have that much time to visit the Island. This is the beach to snorkel and dive at Cozumel. There is a bar and a restaurant, Sunset beach is one of the most popular beaches in Cozumel.
One of our favorite beaches, with beautiful coral reefs. The Money Bar, a nice beach club, serves drinks and good food. Dzul-Ha Has one of the best snorkling reefs of Cozumel, with it’s rocky iron shores.
Kind of a ‘sophisticated’ beach because of the beach club. Overall a quiet beach, with great possibilities to fish! The access to the sea is good, not many rocks. Good food at the restaurant!
A small, quiet beach with a small bar/restaurant, ‘La Corona’. A lot cheaper (but good!) than most of the other Cozumel beaches! The beach is kind of rocky, which means good for snorkling!
Playa Carlos’ and Charlies
Beach club Carlos’ and Charlies is nothing more and nothing less than a fun place to spend a while and have some drinks and food. It has a long, long history in Cozumel, it has gone through quite some renovations, but they are still there! Don’t go here for an intimate conversation, you go here to drink tequila shots and get crazy!
Playa San Francisco is a verry pretty beach, but with a lot of vendors. The beach club has a clean pool as well as very clean bathrooms.
Paradise beach is one of the busiest beach clubs on Cozumel.It has all the amenities and water toys that you can wish for. Trampolines, Palm tree climbing, kayaks, and of course all the dive and scuba gear you want. Paradise beach has the largest fresh water swimming pool on Cozumel!
One of the bigger, and relatively cheap beach clubs at Cozumel. They have beach chairs, umbrellas, drinks, water adventure park, swimming pool, showers and bathrooms, food, snorkeling gear, lockers, massages, and more..
Playa Palancar is a favorite beach for the locals. It’s a small, quiet beach, a really pretty place.The sea is super clean, transparent and very calm. You can use the umbrelas and chairs for free, just pay for your drinks at the local restaurant. You can see the fishes swimming from the beach!
Nachi Cocom Beach Club is located on the southwestern side of Cozumel, just north of some of the best reefs in Cozumel, like the world-famous Palancar Reef. The El Cedral Ruins are also only a few miles away, downtown San Miguel will take you about 15 minutes.
Relax under the palapa-bar ‘Bob Marley’, just enjoy tour beer and some local food. Don’t worry be happy!
Playa San Martin
Like most of the beaches on the Eastern side of Cozumel, the appeal of this beach lies in its undeveloped and lightly frequented nature. Umlike most of the other Cozumel beaches, Playa San Martin has a sandy beach without any rocks! The surf is a bit rough.
Playa Chen Rio
Playa Chen Rio is a small beach that is sheltered by a natural wall of coral rock. White sandy beaches and turquoise water will take your breath away!
Playa Punta Morena
Although the beach itself is beautiful at Playa Punta Morena, we had some mixed comments lately on Punta Morena. It seems they want to make a quick buck of the tourists, so be sure you ask for the ‘peso menu’ instead of the ‘dollar menu’!
Like most of the beaches at the eastern side of Cozumel, the white sand and turquoise waters are beautiful to spend a day like you were in paradise! Beware of the strong undertow in the ocean though, it can be quite dangerous to swim here!
Another beautiful beach at the ‘other’ side of Cozumel. You will have this quiet peaceful beach almost to yourselves, and promise, the food in the restaurant is delicious!
Not really fit to swim, this Cozumel beach. There are some sharks in the sea, and the currents can be very strong. It is the most remote beach, furthest from the pier where the cruise ships arrive. The beach itself has mostly sharp coral rocks, so not much fun to walk neither. There is a Mayan Ruin at Playa Xhanan, called Castillo Del Rey, in fact it doesn’t look like a ruin. This is the main attraction on this part of Cozumel, but only go there when you have a four wheel drive truck!
Come and enjoy the Cozumel beaches!
