Great, great place to spend the day! Good food and drinks from the friendly staff, small pool (great for little ones), a couple of places to get into the ocean and a rough side if it's safe to ride a few waves (caution recommended due to possible undertow). They have clean bathrooms, showers, hammocks, lounge chairs and other services such... More

Came to this side of island by purself bc bar hop tour was full. Happy that we ended up going dolo. Our taxi was $70 total and he would drive us and stop and stay with us. We went here and Coconuts. Bring cash! I got a beach massage, nothing better than hearing the crashing waves on a massage table.... More

So the cruise stopped in Cozumel and we had nothing planned. What to do? There were six of us and we found a taxi that would give us a tour of the island for $30 each. After a short stop downtown in San Miguel our driver headed for the other side of the island and suggested we begin our look... More

It was a very quiet day when we visited, and the beach and the views are spectacular. However the cost of food and drink was outrageous and not worth it. Bring a cooler and blanket and enjoy the view from the beach.

Good service and a great place to enjoy sun or shade. Not a crowded beach, at least when we were there. Went to this beach the most with our rental car.

We stopped here when we had a day in Cozumel in 2016 and loved it. When we started planning another cruise to Cozumel with brother/sister in law we knew that we would have to go here. It's just beautiful and peaceful and relaxing. Sandy beaches but also some rocky points for exciting waves and splashes. Plenty of chairs and hammocks.... More

People who visit Cozumel don't realize how wonderful the east side is. This is a great stop for food, drinks, shopping and walking on beach. Bartender Pepe is great. Also, you must try Lupita for a massage. She is great..

We spent the day at Punta Morena and had a terrific time. We grabbed a couple of lounge chairs in the shade and had drinks in our hands within minutes. We ordered a delicious lunch delivered right to our chairs. The beach is rocky but there is a protected cove that is great for swimming. They provide outdoor showers so... More

Our original excursion was cancelled so we ended up going to Punta Moreno. We were very pleased with our decision. The view was spectacular. We were able to do some snorkeling. We were able to see crab and a variety of fish close to shore. Some of us ventured out farther and saw a lot more. We would definitely go... More
