So you’ve decided to head to the Caribbean coast of Mexico and now you’re wondering whereabouts to lay down your beach towel? Well, you have plenty of choices, from Cancun to Cozumel to Playa del Carmen and beyond! Some public beaches based on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula are better than others, and here are 7 of the finest.
Main Beach, Playacar. Pristine sand and tropical azure waters are just two of the reasons to visit this beach located just north of Playa del Carmen.
Coco Beach, Playa del Carmen. This beach sits pretty much at the end of the town and apart from some nice clean sand, it is also the site of some interesting boating tours.
Playa San Francisco, Cozumel. This beach has immaculate sand and is a great location for families as it is very close to some good value hotel resorts and plenty of food and entertainment.
Playa San Juan, Cozumel. This beach has vast white sands with beach bars and restaurants close by. Also a good spot for watersports.
Playa Tortuga, Cancun. Despite its somewhat rocky appearance, this beach is the site of amazing powdered white sand and snorkelling tours to go and see the turtles.
Playa Caracol, Cancun. Shallow waters and often calm seas make this beach perfect for families. It can be one of the most crowded beaches in all of Mexico during peak season.
Tulum Beach, Riviera Maya. What makes this beach unique from the rest is the appearance of an old Mayan temple perched on the rocks above the sand. You can get your sunbathing, swimming, and history lessons all in the same place!
It is no wonder people label Mexico as being one of the ultimate beach holiday destinations on the planet! Have you ever visited a beach on the Yucatán Peninsula and which was your favourite?
