On the wild East Coast of Cozumel, this long stretch of white sand is perfect for sunbathing. The currents can be a bit strong here sometimes so swimming isn’t allowed, but it’s definitely worth a stop when driving on the wild side of the island. This is one of the more remote beaches to reach, so you’ll need a car or a hired driver to get there. Near Chen Rio.
Note: Since 2008, Sargassum (seaweed) has regularly arrived on the east coast beaches (and Playa del Carmen, Cancun, etc.) from April to August. Thankfully, the west coast of Cozumel is one of the only places in the region spared from the smelly stuff, so we recommend visiting Punta Sur or one of the excellent west coast Beach Clubs during this time.
