San Francisco Beach is a 5Km. or 3 miles long beach of white and gold sand! It is one of the best and most popular beaches on Cozumel for tourists and locals alike who love to come here on the weekends to enjoy their music and beach games!
Just a 15 minute ride from the cruise ship terminal in Cozumel, it is popular with cruise ship tourists who are on a time schedule and want fun at the beach! Shady areas make it great if you love the beach but cannot take too much sun.
You will find lots of water activities such as parasailing, jet ski or wave runner rentals, banana boat rides and more! They also have a fresh water pool if you like. You may also want to climb the iceberg or jump on the water trampoline.
Being such a popular Cozumel beach, you will find a couple of restaurants, dressing rooms, rental shops for water sports, chairs etc. at Playa San Francisco!
Scuba divers love San Francisco Beach as their launching point for the offshore reef there as well as Santa Rosa Wall. You will be able to rent snorkeling equipment and explore the crystal clear waters of this beach! There are over 15 well known dive sites within a 5 mile radius. Plan ahead and have the best beach vacation in Cozumel!
This is a fun beach filled with activities. If you are ready to rev things up, have fun!
San Francisco Beach is one of the original and most popular beaches on Cozumel and can get quite crowded during peak tourist season. If you do not like crowds and lots of activities this may not be the beach for you unless it is a quieter day. If you would like a little quieter beach we suggest going South a little bit to Playa Palancar past Paradise Beach.
