Punta Morena, Cozumel

3.6
#10 of 14 in Beaches in Cozumel
With calm Caribbean waves and a wide stretch of sand, Punta Morena remains a favorite choice for couples and families seeking a relaxing spot away from the rush of San Miguel. Grab a cocktail or your favorite beverage to cool down on hot day, sit back and enjoy the view of the water, or try out some of the food served up by the local vendors. If the current seem a bit too strong for swimming, you can walk around the area and look for a few memorable souvenirs. Punta Morena is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Cozumel Edition.

  • Beautiful beach on the east side of the island with beach chairs, hammocks etc. and even a pool. Of course if you want to stay and take advantage of the facilities offered you are expected to buy food...  more »

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
