Paradise Beach

Set on the west coast of Cozumel, Paradise Beach is aptly named. Its tropical tranquility and unparalleled beauty makes this beach the place that vacation dreams of made of. Not only can you enjoy the beach on the beach, but just behind the fringe of coconut palms is a pool for those who feel more comfortable swimming in an enclosed environment.

Situated on the island of Cozumel, You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying in the immediate vicinity. The beaches in Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean aren't usually known for their peace and quiet, but Paradise Beach is less exposed than the others, making it just the right spot for vacationers who'd prefer to stay out of the busiest areas.

How to Access The Beach

Paradise Beach is located just off Rafael E. Melgar.

Amenities and Ambiance

There is no denying it, Paradise Beach is a stunner. The water that washes ashore is a bright almost neon blue, but very quickly becomes topaz before settling into the deep-water navy blue. As you sit ashore looking out over this color wonder, you'll find yourself anchored in soft powder white sand, as as you look to the left you will see a jetty stretching out into the sea.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
