Best Beaches in Cozumel

1. Main Beach

Main Attraction

Though it lacks for a better name, Playa del Carmen's two-mile-long Main Beach doesn't lack for much of anything else.

It's got those turquoise waters everyone's crazy for, the dreamy white sand and palm trees, and the active nightlife scene that's ever-fueled by the joyful energy of vacationers from all over the world.

A hip and cosmopolitan beach town, Playa del Carmen caters to laid-back explorers, curious backpackers and stylish expats alike.

Find What You Fancy

Walking along the popular stretch of Main Beach, you'll see vacationers from nearby hotels and condos reclining under the sun's rays. You might notice a large number of Canadians, Americans and South Americans here—Playa del Carmen has become hugely popular with these communities, and their presence contributes to the town's international feel.

Check in with a water sports vendor or a snorkeling tour operator if you want to hit the water, or head to the nearby ferry dock to take an excursion to Cozumel.

Dining and Nightlife

Once the sun sets, most visitors pack up and hit the lively restaurants and bars that line Fifth Avenue, which is Playa del Carmen's main business strip.

This is a fabulous place to people-watch, sip a beer, chat with fellow vacationers or, if you feel up to it, dance the night away.

In contrast to the beach's sleepy mornings and afternoons, evenings are energetic and festive. Take a shot, or just take it easy. Your choice!
