We love Playa San Martin!!!

The only thing that would make it better is some loungers and umbrellas or palapas. A beautiful, natural beach!!

There is a lifeguard stand here and a large staircase that descends to the beach below, it does have hand rails but it can be covered in sand, so do take care. It is beyond compare the views though ~ plenty of parking and there is a bar across the street that we didn't go visit (we just wanted to... More

Great spot for pictures. Safe and very accessible. Right across the street there are little stores and a good authentic restaurant.

Found this beach on our drive around Cozumel last week. This beach is Fabulous! Nobody for miles and miles, water a beautiful turquoise. We stopped and took off our clothes and swam and walked for hours. No hassles, Beautiful day. Go to Coconuts on the hill (only one hill on this side of Cozumel) and have a great lunch!

The beach was beautiful and so worth the price of a taxi, however the bar and grill across the street has changed hands and has become a high pressure tourist trap. We didn't even try to eat here, it was a struggle just to get a beer, and it was $4.00!!! Go for the beach, just stay on the east... More

After visiting the beaches that came before it while driving the island we stopped here. There were no rocks, no charge, and all sand. Very tranquil and perfect beach stop on the island.

This beach was beautiful. We went mid-day and the waves were moderate from a good swimmer's perspective. The current and undertow can be bad here we heard, it was not on the day we went. There was a lifeguard. This beach appeared very clean whereas many of those we saw were not. We heard this was due to neighboring islands... More

The beach here is the best in cozumel. White sands, small crowds, lifeguards on duty. Had a great day playing in the waves. There is a small beach club here as well. Good tacos and cold beer.

When you go to the ocean do you like crashing waves and pristine beaches? If so, this is the place for you. We happened along this beach on the far side of the island after realizing that punta sur closed early and we didn't want to pay the money to go there for an hour. This beach has beautiful sand,...
