Mexican Beach

Mexican beaches. This section will give you more insight into the abundance of beaches in Mexico, and the amazing destinations and idyllic spots.

With approximately 10,000 kilometers of pristine coastline the supply of Mexican beaches is bountiful. So too is the diversity of beaches in Mexico especially with the stark contrast between the Caribbean and Pacific coasts.

The Caribbean coast is famed for its warmer waters and white sands. The state Quintana Roo has a clustering of some of the best beaches in Mexico. These include the tourist hotspot Cancun, plus more tranquil destinations such as Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The great quirk about the beaches in this Mexican state is that they are also conveniently located nearby some of Mexico's most fascinating Mayan ruins.

The Pacific coast is renowned for its turquoise waters and its rougher seas, perfect for those looking for adventure, especially surfers. It is home to the most popular beach in Mexico, Acapulco, also known as the 'Pearl of the Pacific'. The Pacific coast is full of variety too, from Puerto Escondido, in the state of Oaxaca, which is probably the Mexican beach that draws in the biggest surfing crowd, to Puerto Vallarta, bursting full of Mexican charm and colonial architecture, and even the famous Cabo San Lucas, known for its luxury resorts and animated nightlife.
