In my travels, I’ve found quite a few splendiferous beaches. Beaches where I did not want to depart from and several I just have to return to. There are even some I would consider calling paradise. A beach that I’ve recently visited is actually named Paradise Beach and is located on the island of Cozumel, Mexico.
Just a short taxi ride from the cruise port on Cozumel, our group of seven was soon lounging beachside. The whispering palms overhead created ample protection from the soon to be hot sun.
After we made our mid-morning claim on our beach-side lounge chair, we were promptly visited by a very efficient server where we were charged $12.00 per person. Two dollars was for the daily chair rental and the balance was to be applied to a food & bar credit. The fee for relaxation was no problem as we soon ordered an iced down bucket of Sol beer, nachos and quesadillas.
There were a plethora of beach toys available, but we felt more like lounging than playing. It’s a beautiful area to relax, complete with a huge pool and a full service bar nearby. One can even lounge on a chair at pools edge where the pool water covers the chair bottom, lending to a cool lounging spot in the sun.
At beach-side, you will find a cool, shaded tiki hut bar. I sat at the bar sipping a great tasting frozen rum mango beverage. I attempted to strike up a conversation with a couple of resident macaws. I’m uncertain if it was what I said, or perhaps the language barrier, but they were unwilling to share Paradise Beach secrets with me.
Beyond this bar, one can stroll through a well manicured grassy area surrounded by palm trees, flowers and vegetation indigenous to the area.
Even with a bit of coral in the Caribbean waters between Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsula, we had a great time lounging there in the warm, calm water.
It was early April and we had the place pretty much to ourselves even up until we left mid afternoon. With the gorgeous view, the efficient wait staff, the fantastic amenities all for reasonable prices, it’s agreed, not only was this a relaxing day well spent, we all felt that it was a Paradise Beach.
