These Beaches in Mexico Will Make You Pack Your Bags and Go

Mexico is often atop the countries to visit list of many; it comes as no surprise because of its distinct culture, delicious food and its beaches. The country has several sandy shores with turquoise waters, blue skies, friendly locals and many water sports, meaning, you have plenty of options when it comes to having a beach getaway for short or long trips.

Here are some of the beaches to add to your travel bucket list when you visit this beautiful country.

Playa Del Carmen

Beautiful, fetching, lovely, fantastic, stunning --- you’ll run out of adjectives to describe this beach when you see and experience it. Regardless of the Mexico vacation rentals on your short list, you’ll make the right choice. The beach area has fine and clean sand where you can sink your toes in, laze on it or simply take long walks along the shore. The water is placid during certain seasons, which make it ideal for swimming or just wading for both young and old visitors.

For the more adventurous, Playa del Carmen is an ideal port of entry to Cozumel and Mesoamerian Barrier Reef. Both are good places to discover and explore the underwater ecosystem of the area where you get to see different kinds of corals and species of fish.


When you hear Cancun, you think about parties, clubs and beautiful people and beaches. All these are true, but it is so much more. You have an eclectic mix of restaurants that serve dishes from all over the world, accommodations for all types of budgets and several fun activities to do at night and during the day. Explore its underwater ecosystem to see whales, some turtles and various species of fish along with corals in different shades of the color spectrum. You won’t run out of things to do during your stay in this part of Mexico.

Bahia Balandra

This is a great beach for those who want to go on a family getaway during their holiday in La Paz. Bahia Balandra has a natural and raw appeal exemplified by its famous rock formation, Diamond Rock. Its sandy shores and emerald waters are enticing, take a dip in it to douse the heat and refresh your body. Its makeup makes it a safe place to swim and wade in. The amenities and facilities aren’t beachfront, which means you won’t jostle for space as much with other tourists in more popular beaches in the region.

Puerto Vallarta Beach

The nearby resort town is in a perfect location for beach lovers as it is in proximity to several beaches that cater to different types of travelers. The coves are ideal snorkeling destinations because of their rich marine life and colorful underwater ecosystems. There are also spots where visitors can see whales and go deep sea fishing. If you want to take a break from its sandy shores, you can go to the quaint old town and visit the shops that sell a variety of items.

Playa Norte

If you’re looking to get away from the crowds of Cancun, visit Playa Norte. The latter is an ideal place to just relax and unwind, or see marine life. Watching whale sharks and sea turtles is one of the most popular things to do during your stay. The long stretch of sand with palm trees as its backdrop, make for an idyllic setting. Some visitors travel to this part of Mexico to avoid the spring break crowd, but a trip here doesn’t have to feel middle-of-nowhere isolated.  There are a couple of places to have a good time, and mix and mingle with other people.

Playa Del Amor

Also known as Lover’s Beach, Playa Del Amor is right where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Visitors can easily get to the beach by boat from Cabo San Lucas’ marina. The vast ocean views, the beautiful Land’s End formations and the snorkeling make this destination a worthwhile addition to your itinerary. However, the waves can get rough during certain times and seasons on the beach’s Pacific side.


The Mayan ruins in Tulum are atop the itineraries of history-lovers, but the area’s beaches are gaining recognition as well. The shorelines have powdery, white sand, dancing palm trees and azure water, all of which make for an ideal beach getaway. It is also only a couple of hours away from Cancun, which means you can visit this place to relax and unwind after partying for a few nights.

Playa de Akumal

Playa de Akumal is near Playa Del Carmen, making it an ideal stop for those that are in the region and want to explore more of it. Akumal has a beautiful reef that is hundreds of feet deep and has stunning views of its underwater ecosystem. You’ll get to see different kinds of fish, turtles and other sea creatures and corals while snorkeling. The good thing about this destination is that its waters are also relatively calm and safe, even for young and old swimmers. After a tiring day of snorkeling and swimming, rest and relax on the white sand beach.


This beach used to be a popular counterculture destination from the 60s to the 80s. It also became one of the very few nude beaches in the country. Fast forward to today, Zipolite is now a famous sandy shore that attracts a worldwide audience of beach lovers, surfers and yogis. There’s a bit of everything for everyone, the waves are strong enough for those that want to improve their surfing skills, there are a couple of budget accommodations for backpackers and budget-travelers, and the beach is nice for those that just want to relax and unwind.

These are just some of the beaches to add to your itinerary during a trip to Mexico. Consider these for your next escapade and choose accommodation that is convenient, comfortable, accessible and within your budget.
