Punta Morena is our pilgrimage spot every time we go to Cozumel. 20 years ago I got caught in a rip current on the beach, and a bartender saw me, grabbed a surfboard and saved my life.
The place was totally destroyed in 2005 with hurricane Wilma, but had been rebuilt extensively after that.
What broke our hearts when we arrived was that the Hurricanes in the fall of 2020, although not hitting Cozumel directly, had once again done heavy damage to the East side of the Island, especially Punta Morena. The main building had the roof torn off, and the long wooden porch had been destroyed.
Thankfully, the kitchen was running, and the bar was operational. Enjoyed great fresh seafood, and the best habanero salsa I've ever had. The staff was fantastic, and treated us as family.

Great place. Buy a round of fair priced drinks for use of all the facilities including pool, hammocks and chairs. Restrooms included. Don’t expect to use the facilities-if you don’t buy from them. Only fair.

We stopped here to relax on the beach and play in the waves . Found some nice sea glass along the shore . Had great piña coladas and our server Roland was amazing !
A storm blew in and chased us away but it was still a great time plenty of shade spots to lounge in . Beach was kept super clean as well .

We spent a couple hours here eating lunch and enjoying the views. My husband and I split the fish taco platter and an order of guacamole and chips along with 3 beers and 2 sodas and 1 mojito. Total bill was $47 plus tip. The food was just average but the views were fantastic. They do have a pool but only a few people were in it as it was a little cool. We were able to negotiate a taxi roundtrip from town for 700 pesos plus tip.

This is a great little beach club almost at the tip of Cozumel. The food is great and the service friendly. It's not super cheap but not outrageous either considering the atmosphere and the use of the hammocks and lounge chairs.
Be sure you come here to spend the afternoon.

What a great place to stop and eat with scenery that cant be beat. Food was awesome, server (Wish I could remember His name to give Him a shout out) was super attentive and was like being with Family. Much appreciated to the owners, who obviously run a top notch business!!
Hammocks, Palapas, Shade or Sun, They have it all here.
Eat, swim and be as Lazy as you want, because you'll be wanting more and more!
Will definitely return....
Tell em' Chicago Joe sent you....

We were traveling along the "wild side" and one of the workers was out in the road flagging people down to come to the beach. We figured why not?

There was no cover charge, they just wanted you to purchase something while there.

This place is beautiful! It's very very big with lots of soft sand but of course since it's on the wild side, it's not really a "swimming" beach. There was a place to go in the water with a little cove but the day we were there the water seemed a little high and dangerous.

The area is super nice and plenty of places to spread out and hang out in the sun or under the palapa's. There's a big restaurant area there and swings at the bar. We only stopped to get a few drinks and just to hang out and take some pictures. Had I known about this place before, I would have loved to spend the entire day there.

You have to remember though, there's no electricity on this side so either things are brought in, cooked on grills and such. The bathrooms are clean too!

It's really sad to see the pool area in such dismay after the hurricane and the building/palapa there with no roof and falling apart. Maybe some day when the economy gets better and the COVID days have passed us, they will be able to rebuild again.

I would definitely return to this place and hang out for a day next time we are in Cozumel

My favourite place on the Island. Beautiful improvements to the property and service by Wille exceptional as always.
Not happy about the new “dogs allowed “ change. The east side is the place to turn off the noise of traffic and barking dogs. I hope this is temporary.

Punta Morena is one of the best casual restaurants in Cozumel. How do I know? Well....I used to work for Carnival Cruise Lines and visit Cozumel almost every week. The quality of a seafood served in Punta Morena would surprise even the most sophisticated guests. It is always fresh and costs almost nothing. Frankly.....where else would you be able to you enjoy a huge Seafood Platter for less than $10.00 a person? Besides....the restaurant is located right on the Caribbean Sea shore. Just think about it....lobster tail + fresh pinacolada on the rocks + the best grilled squid ever had in my entire life. And all those wonders are being served right on the white, peaceful beach with an easy access to a gorgeous, turquoise ocean. Sometimes dreams come true........

Pros:

1. Beach is very nice and secluded
2. Beach chairs and hammocks available

Cons:

1. They DEMAND that you purchase beverages/food at least $15.00 per person (including children) in order to use their facilities

2. Outages prices for beer at 75 pesos - which is about 4 dollars. Average price in other beaches is 2 dollars. The food prices were equally outrageous as most dishes are about 20 dollars and up. Again... Way above average for other beaches in Cozumel

3. Poor service

4. Although the beach is very nice and secluded, it just had a depressed feel to it as there were not many beach goers. Probably sure to their pricing practices

Do not recommend and will obviously not be returning. Waste of my time.
