1. Tulum. Though this alone would make this a tourist destination, the wide sandy beaches here have gained their own fame as well. Situated at the southern end of the Riviera Maya, the beach at Tulum has the pristine white sand, palm trees and turquoise water that creates the quintessential beach vacation that everyone dreams of on a snowy day. The region has great beach hotels to stay and relax while enjoying the beaches. Touropia

2. Playa Norte. Isla Mujeres off the coast of Cancun is popular for relaxing and wildlife watching. Sea Turtles and Whale sharks are two of the most popular species to see here. The northern end of the island is Playa Norte which has a wide swatch of sand that is lined with palm trees and also a few beachfront restaurants and bars. While some come here to get away from the spring break hot spot in Cancun, it needn’t feel isolated here.  Touropia

3. Playa del Amor. Nestled at the meeting between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean, the secluded two-sided Playa del Amor (Lover’s Beach) is one of the most famous beaches in Mexico. The beach is easily accessible by water boat from the marina of Cabo San Lucas. It is well worth a visit- with the towering Land’s End rock formations, endless ocean views, and great snorkeling on the sea of Cortez side, the place is exquisite. Touropia

4. Cancun Beach. The vacation destination of Cancun is well-known for its gorgeous beaches and turquoise waters. This strip along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico is full of many different resorts, restaurants and shops that are great places to stay and play. The region is reminiscent of the Vegas strip, with all of the resorts being close together in a line, with miles of sand around them. Touropia

5. Playa La Ropa. The “Beach of Clothing” got its name when a Spanish galleon wrecked, and its cargo of colorful fabrics washed ashore along this beach. Today, this is the main water sport beach for Ixtapa. Parasailing, jet skis and hobie cats are all available for rent here, and there are a large number of restaurants to enjoy after a good outing on the water. Touropia

7. Zipolite. This beach was known as a free love center from the 60’s to the 80’s, and a huge counterculture destination. It gained notoriety as one of Mexico’s few nude beaches, although the majority of sunbathers remain clothed. Today, it attracts an international class of sun lovers, shirtless yoga gurus and surfers. While there are still plenty of budget lodgings, a number of midrange hotels and classier restaurants have appeared at the west end of the village. Touropia

8. Playa del Carmen. The beach here is lovely- for those who like to relax, the sand is clean and the water calm. Though often jammed with Europeans, in many ways Playa del Carmen still feels like the sleepy fishing village it once was. A mixture of large resorts and small hotels, cruise ship visitors, and easy boat access to Cozumel and the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef make this a favorite location to be able to venture to other ports.

9. Bahia Balandra. This is the premier family beach in the Baja region of La Paz. Perhaps best known for the rock formation called Diamond rock, Bahia Balandra is a mix of sand and beautiful wind and water-worn rock formations. It is sheltered in almost every direction for safe swimming, and the location is shallow enough that the chilly Pacific water warms early here. Because amenities are not beachside, it is often not as busy as other local beaches. Touropia

10. Playa de Akumal. This fabulous snorkeling region near Playa Del Carmen has a reef that stretches from 20-300 feet offshore, offering views for all different levels of swimmers. Turtles, tropical fish and more are common sights here, and the water is safe and calm enough for even the young snorkelers to enjoy. For those who aren’t into snorkeling, the sand is white and the water has no waves, so it is lovely for swimming and relaxing too. Touropia
