Playa San Martin

Playa San Martin - Mexico

Situated on the south eastern shores of Cozumel, facing out into the Caribbean Sea, Playa San Martin is a public beach formed of pristine white sands. While having the feeling of being one of the island’s most untamed beaches, it still has facilities including a restaurant and bar.

Part of the reason for its relative lack of develop is that its waters are not always suitable for swimming - strong currents are frequent and so anyone unsure of the local conditions should check before heading more than knee-deep. However it’s not all bad news, since the waves do make it a good spot for surfers with some previous experience on a board.

Also sometimes known as Playa Bonita by Cozumel residents, Playa San Martin is a fine area of coast to unwind with a beach stroll or horse ride. 

In May through to October after dark it’s possible to witness adult turtles dragging themselves up the beach to lay their eggs, with hatchlings appearing roughly two months later.
