“Going off the beaten path”

Playa de San Martin

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 March 2018

We were on a cruise and had done most of the tourist excursions in Cozumel before, so we rented a jeep and drove to the windy side of the island. Very nice beach with surf strong enough for body surfing. We ate lunch at the restaurant across the street and the food was really good. They even had WiFi which made our kids happy !!! The waves were fun for our family but we have teenagers, if you have young kids the waves would be too much for them on this side of the island. The beach was not crowded at all and there was a lifeguard on duty. On the way back to the ship we stopped along the way at several places and took some great pictures. Was a great day in Cozumel.

Taking a driving tour around the island we stopped at this beach where there was good parking. There were restaurants and tourist shops across the street from the beach. The beach had nice sand with locals and tourists enjoying the sun, sand, and waves. The water is really a beautiful blue. There was a lifeguard station too.

Beautiful powder beach to take a break during a tour around the island. The waves are big so not suitable for kids swimming
