Playa San Francisco
Playa San Francisco Review
Playa San Francisco was one of the first beach clubs on the coast. The inviting 5-km (3-mile) stretch of sandy beach, which extends along Carretera Sur south of Parque Chankanaab at about Km 14, is among the longest and finest on Cozumel. Encompassing the beaches Playa Maya and Santa Rosa, it's typically packed with cruise-ship passengers in high season. On Sunday locals flock here to eat fresh fish. Amenities include two outdoor restaurants, a bar, dressing rooms, gift shops, beach chairs, restrooms, massage treatments, and water-sports equipment rentals. Divers use the beach as a jumping-off point for the San Francisco reef. In lieu of a fee, there's a $10 minimum purchase of food or drinks for adults. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (free); showers; toilets. Best For: walking; swimming.
