Beaches in Cozumel

Cozumel beaches offer a stunning location to relax and unwind. They are the ideal location to enjoy the spectacular, panoramic views from the island.

Tourists usually head straight for the main coastal hot-spots of Playa San Francisco, Playa Mia, Paradise beach, Playa Corona, Playa Palencar and the unusually named Mr. Sanchos.

Paradise Beach is probably the most famous and regularly visited location on the island. Many of the more remote Cozumel beaches are relatively undeveloped and there are some real gems just waiting to be discovered.

The beautiful coastal areas provide a great location to experience swimming and snorkeling. There are various opportunities to explore the beautiful marine life and spectacular coral reefs. You can enjoy a variety of day excursions in Cozumel, you can travel there via the ferry from Playa del Carmen or by booking a coach trip from resorts in Cancun and throughout the Mayan Riviera.

The Chankanaab National Park

One of the most visited areas on the island is the Chankanaab National Park. This park is home to lush botanical gardens and unique varieties of wildlife.

There are also a small selection of bars and restaurants at the park. It is definitely a great way to spend the day and an increasingly popular tourist attraction to enjoy on the island.

Many tourists visit the inspiring Chankanaab Marine Park to enjoy the option of snorkelling and scuba diving.

You can also experience the opportunity to interact and swim with dolphins whilst you are there.

Alongside the dolphin program is the possibility to find out fascinating information about manatees and sea lions and interact with them too.

If you don't fancy the dolphin experience though and if snorkeling, scuba diving and the varied water sports are not really your thing, then there is always the option to just sit back and relax on the beautiful Cozumel beaches.

Why not simply pour yourself another refreshing drink and simply watch the world go by in the breathtaking coastal setting.
