Stroll along the sand or relax in the shade on Playa Carmen, a lengthy beach with room enough to find yourself a quiet spot. Surfers flock here, but the strong tides don't lend themselves much to swimming. Likewise, this may not be the best place for children, though rock pools at low tide provide places to play. Refuel at the onsite restaurant and browse handcrafted jewelry and clothing from the occasional vendor.

They are beaches so extensive that everyone who visits them finds a quiet place and away from the crowd to sit and relax. You can enjoy the postcards at every sunset, as they are all different and each has its beauty. You can also have fun watching all those surfers who go in search of the best waves. I recommend taking advantage of the low tide and approaching the rocky areas to be able to bathe in the natural pools that are set up.
