Playa El Carmen

El Carmen is a welcoming stretch of unspoiled shore with lots of beach combing potential. The sand seems to be extra-white here, so pack lots of sun block. Sand bars create long right breaks and somewhat shorter lefts, attracting beginner surfers and long boarders who dot the horizon, dancing along the surface of the sea. El Carmen is by far the most popular beach in the area, perfect for those wishing to socialize or to browse jewelry from local vendors.
