The incredible Cozumel Island sits a few short miles off the coast from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It’s one of the smaller Caribbean islands and is renowned for its Mayan Ruins, coral reefs, scuba diving spots, warm Caribbean waters, jungles and of course, soft white sandy beaches – no wonder its one of the top cruise ship passenger destinations in the Caribbean. Less than 6% of the island is developed which means tourists will be able to enjoy lots of peace and quiet on some of the most popular tropical island beaches in the world. Here I have listed 4 of the most beautiful Cozumel beaches for you to enjoy.
Paradise Beach: Situated a few miles from the international cruise ship dock sits the most popular beach in Cozumel – Paradise Beach. It’s a private beach but don’t worry, entrance is free. The beach itself is truly spectacular and comes with crystal clear waters and a very scenic coastline. It’s great for relaxation and tourists can kick back on snow white beach sand or have a few drinks in one of the beach bars. Those who came for the activities are in luck because for a mere $10 you will get access to most of the beach activities for the entire day – this includes everything from kayaking, banana boat rides, climbing coconut trees and lots more.
Playa Mia Beach: Playa Mia is the ultimate family beach. It’s a great place for families so bring the kids. Enjoy taking your kids to the mini zoo, the underwater Mayan city and the kids playground. If you need some time for yourself then leave your kids at with the babysitting services and go have a few drinks on the beach or enjoy some of the beach activities available here. There is one thing I have not mentioned about Playa Mia – the beach has an entrance fee of around $12, but that is a small price to pay for all this entertainment which makes it worth it.
Passion Island Beach: One of the best things about Passion Island Beach is that it’s incredibly beautiful and surprisingly quiet at the same time. This makes it the best Cozumel beach for peace and quiet. Order a few drinks while laying back in your comfortable shaded beach hammock while taking in the sights and sounds of this Mexican tropical paradise. You will also find various food vendors all along the Passion Island Beach selling everything from seafood dishes to some of the most incredible Mexican cuisine. If you ever get tired of relaxing then choose from activities such as swimming in the crystal clear and warm Caribbean ocean or snorkel around some of the spectacular coral reefs.
Playa San Francisco Beach: Nowhere else on Cozumel island will you find better Pia Coladas than right here on Playa San Fransisco Beach. Enjoy it while on your beach chair on the white sandy shores or even under a shaded hammock – while enjoying the breathtaking views of this picture perfect beach. The beach activities found here are pretty standard and includes the usual things such as snorkeling, diving, jet skiing, banana boat rides and sailing. However, the beach has a lovely little fresh water pool. And did I mention the Pia Coladas?
