As the best options on the list, some beaches stand out that have become the favorites of locals and visitors. Here are the best beaches in Playa del Carmen:


It is located to the north, as a reference is the ferry dock to Cozumel. The attraction is the huge arch-shaped structure at the entrance of the place in the shape of two intertwined giants. It is a very representative place of the city and is known as Portal Maya.

It is easily accessible because it is literally in the center, it also has a variety of nearby bars and restaurants.


Although it is a tourist development with closed access to its beaches, it can be reached on foot from the ferry dock without any problem because they are public beaches and they turn out to be a little crowded, it is also suitable for practicing extreme sports.


This beach is one of the favorites, as it is one of the busiest. As an attraction of this beach, there are two beach clubs that offer lounge chairs, towels, children’s pools, massages, and in the surroundings there are rentals of boats, catamarans, and parachutes for more fun in the waters of the Caribbean.


Its location is at the northern end of Playa del Carmen. It is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and its main attraction is that it has a cenote that empties into the sea.

It is the best place to swim safely due to its shallow depth and keeping of a gentle surf.
