We ate at the restaurant across the street from San Martin Cozumel. The restaurant bathrooms were very dirty. We went to eat and they gave us menus with US dollar prices. But after lunch they told us they could only charge my credit card in Pesos. In dollars it was $59 ($10 tip from me), however, the total amount in Pesos resulted in $91 dollars (17 Pesos to $1) . When I complained he told me to pay in dollars which I did not have. We found out they have two menus, one in dollars and one in Pesos.

Heading to Cozumel? First time? It's a must that you rent a Jeep and make your way to the other side of this beautiful island. This is one of several spots to stop at while you circle the island and it's where you'll find a vast beach, plenty of huge waves and time to relax.

Along the way you'll have plenty of opportunities to grab some cold cervezas, a taco or two and some other delicious food. Take a good 4 - 6 hours and just enjoy what the other side of heaven has to offer, you won't regret it!

Playa San Martin on the far side of the island. Rolling waves, wide sandy beaches (the waves are great for body surfing or bogie boarding, and the area is not strewn with rocks and boulders like almost every other beach on Cozumel). Playa Martin is a world class sandy beach, unlike anything else on Cozumel. We felt safe with our 5 and 7 y.o. kids at this beach. The waves were gentle and consistent. There were only a couple of other groups there. The cruise ship Jeep safari tours just passed right on by (yippee!). Food and drinks (and bathrooms) are reasonably priced at the Diablo restaurant across the road from the beach. There is also a trinket shop there with better prices than in downtown Cozumel. They even have a life guard station here (the restaurant owner said he pays to have lifeguards at the beach). I snorkeled out past the surf break. I did not experience any treacherous currents or other threats. I did not see many fish, but I saw several sting rays.

Cozumel has so many wonderful beaches. Each have their speciality. This one was great for body surfing and swimming. The sand was soft and the beach was clean and not crowded. Cant wait to revisit.

This beach of San Martin (Tortuga Camp area) was our first time stopping in all the trips we've made to Cozumel. I wish we would have stopped here before - it was the most beautiful beach area I've encountered on the East side. The sand was very soft, it was the clearest of seaweed that week in Cozumel on the East side. There weren't any vendors, just beach sand and water. Very calming and relaxing - If we had brought a couple of chairs and umbrella with us, I could have stayed here all day. This is a definite stop if you are on the East side!

I rented a vehicle to go around every single beach around the island.
This beach is so pretty and not full of people making it nice to relax and enjoy the sun.
I personally got engaged in this beach. The waves are a little stronger than other places but not too strong to not swim.

Rent a Jeep and go to the other side of the island for a perfect beach day. San Martin is a favorite, there is a bar/restaurant across the street for cheap and good fish tacos, nachos and cold beer (MUCH better prices than Chen Rio). Also plenty of parking, restrooms, etc. Not crowded and a great way to spend the day. Big waves and sometimes rip currents but a lifeguard stand is on the beach. Recommend!

Clean beach- with lifeguards. It approximately 40 KM from town- 30 min scooter ride. Beach now offers lounge chairs and umbrellas-so bring cash. Across the street are vendors, bathrooms, bars and food. They deliver right to the beach. Very friendly people. It is more expensive for food/drinks than in town-but you don't have to purchase. We usually make the scooter trip 2-3xs in a week.

We were looking for a nice beach to spend Sunday afternoon. San Miguel's small rolling waves, bright blue ocean and tranquility convinced us it was an ideal spot. Less than a dozen tourists or locals accompanied us. A lifeguard kept close watch on swimmers and oriented them (this guiding us) towards a spot where a bid deposit of sand let's you walk on an on from the beach without getting swept by the waves. Felipe set us up with a few (free!) Sun chairs and 2 big umbrellas, and in exchange we ordered drinks and great ceviche. Turtle hatching spots were marked in nearby areas. It was simply a formidable afternoon in a semi-virgin stretch of Cozumel overlooking the Atlantic.

When arriving at the beach before 10 am we were almost alone. The nice guy working at the beach fixed chairs for us for the price of 300 pesos for 2 chairs and an umbrella which was needed because of the strong sun. This is the most beautiful beach I have ever visited. The sand was so white and the water Chrystal clear. unfortunately no snorkeling at this place but wow. If you visit Cozumel you need to come here!
