Off Punta Norte on the northwest coast, private Isla de Pasión has one of Cozumel's loveliest beaches. Most guests arrive on organized excursions (from M$1,090), but you can also get to the Isla dock independently (it’s at the end of the bumpy dirt road to Punta Norte) and come over for M$885. Either way, your visit includes the short round-trip boat ride, a buffet lunch, soft drinks, some alcoholic drinks, and use of the extensive facilities. You can easily spend a
whole day here strolling the strand, floating in the shallow water, swinging in a hammock, playing volleyball, indulging in a massage (for an extra fee), or even getting married in the island's chapel. This is a favorite stop for hordes of cruise-shippers, but the beach stretches for 4 km (2.5 miles), so you can still escape the crowds. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets. Best For: swimming; walking.
