Fodor's Expert Review Punta Maroma
One of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches has deep white sand that feels like powdered sugar and crystalline water that’s free of rocks. The small waves crashing onshore make it great for bodysurfing; 10 minutes off the coast of the Blue Diamond Resort, you'll find terrific diving, too. Hotels supply lounge chairs and offer activities like volleyball, yoga, and even remote-control boat racing for guests. Unfortunately, this beach can only be accessed by way of the security gate on Carretera 307 that leads to Secrets Maroma, Catalonia Playa Maroma, and Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa. Unless you plan to visit by boat or stay at one of these resorts, you’re probably out of luck. Amenities: food and drink; toilets (for resort guests only). Best for: walking.
