Riviera Maya Sights

Mamita's Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 02/19/2015

Fodor's Review

This stretch of beach north of the ferry dock, from Constituyentes to Calle 38, is known to locals as Mamita's, although it also encompasses Kool beach club and the Royal and Mahekal hotels. Independent of the main beach's drop-off (and the sandbags that are sometimes visible there), it's a lovely straight stretch of flat sand and clear water, which you'll share with lots of other visitors. The tradeoff is that Wave Runners, which are largely absent from the main beach, are very present here. It's a good spot for fun in the sun, not seclusion. Amenities: food and drink; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming.
