 Access

From the Ports in Cozumel, take the mid island highway then turn right, heading south along the coast. You will see a 2 or 3 mile stretch of beach with minimal rocks or coral. The spot is located about 500 yards from the Playa Bonita sign, no missing it. You'll know when you're there. There's a small hut mounted with a hammock to let you know it's there.

 Additional Information

There's open parking spots along the highway from the coast. Access is tricky if you have arms full of boards and what not because you have to climb down stepping stones to get to the beach. The spot also gets shallow so watch your ride. There's maybe 5 or 6 spots in the water where there's coral sticking out of the sand. I wouldn't worry about it, just watch your feet.

Atmosphere

This spot is empty year round. It's a shame that nobody comes here that much but it's fine being empty. The only people watching might be some craft merchants on the cliff. They are polite to you and cheer when they see you with a surfboard. No worries.

General

This spot is quiet, simple, naturally beautiful, and an all around fun spot. I have surfed California, Florida, Virginia, and almost all other US spots but Cozumel has been my best in overall terms. See for yourself.
