Paradisiacal Beaches You’ll Want to Visit This Year
Mexico has been a lot in the news lately. In the midst of tumultuous events like the border wall crisis, the migrant caravans, and AMLO’s administration, this country hasn’t stopped to be in the spotlight. Nevertheless, this scenery can’t take away from Mexico its picturesque natural landscapes. Mexico is beautiful, and so are its beaches: sublime coasts, luxuriant nature, and vibrant culture. Here we bring the ten most beautiful beaches in Mexico.
Playa Paraíso – Tulum, Quintana Roo
This not-so-subtle ‘paradisiacal beach’ is a little gem hidden in the heart of a lot of wild and colorful nature. The water is turquoise and the sand coral-white.
Playa Paraiso, not as widely known, still remains somewhat of a secret location away from intrusive tourists – So take the chance while you still can, and go discover its unpolluted waters.
Playa del Amor – Cabo San Lucas, Tulum
The beach of love. This sanctuary located in one of the most beautiful beaches in Cabo San Lucas, was a hidden treasure of Mexico’s treasures until a short time ago. Victim of its success, sometimes it can get a little crowdie, but the beach of love remains as one of the most sublime in Mexico.
Isla Holbox – Tulum, Quintana Roo
We take off to join the island of Holbox, in the state of Quintana Roo, the gem of beaches in Tulum. Might not be Isla Mujeres, but this isolated place with a small beach is very well known for divers who come to admire the sharks.
Not only is this beach in the state of Oaxaca beautiful, but it also offers a lot of undeniable advantages: Have the two flanks of being both a touristic destination with restaurants, bars and hotels near you; yet it’s also a point where marine turtles come regularly to place their eggs. You will enjoy the ecosystem while at the same time be sipping off a Margarita – I mean, not bad.
This is one of the best beaches in Mexico for swimming. For those who want to catch-an-eye on exotic tropical fishes without leaving the boat –if you prefer keeping inside– or getting a clumsy scuba swimming gear. Here, a snorkel is more than enough to admire the marine ecosystem – If you get the chance to go, you’ll see it’s impossible to restrain from such beauty.
In case you were wondering, be calm –you won’t have to worry about any dark Carcosa-esque sharks appearing while you’re swimming here. The species found in this waters are far different from the unconformable Acapulco creature.
There’s no need to advertise Cancún. Everyone already knows about this place: the beach where Americans come to drop the ballast. Nevertheless, this doesn’t take away from Cancun its fabulous spots, like playa Maroma.
These are two small twin beaches inhabited by turtles. In this little corner, you can get along with the animals in the place where nature dominates. Although it is sometimes difficult to access this beach, that keeps it mostly away from tourists.
Playa Piedra de Tlacoyunque
Recognizable thanks to its distinctive giant rocks, this little-known beach deserves to more widely know all around the globe. It has incredible and active wildlife, so you can do some diving sessions before taking your picture with the iconic rock in the sunset.
Playa Las Gatas
Another one of the few remaining hidden beaches of Mexico, this an ideal spot to go to do scuba diving. The corals are beautiful and the waters are calm and clear.
We come to the end of this list with the loved and well-known beach of Isla Mujeres, in Quintana Roo. Where, yes, there are going to be a lot of tourists, but also many great restaurants and bars near you where you can go grab some Mexican street food dishes, just to later return to the beach. If you’re traveling to Mexico for the party, this is the perfect spot for you.
