Isla Holbox beach

Ultimate guide (June 2023)
Isla Holbox is a popular tourist island near the northern coast of Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. There is often a lot of algae, while the water is shallow. Landscapes are usually not very beautiful, and there are a lot of mosquitoes everywhere. But occasional palms can be very picturesque. In general, this is a rather poor place, but very expensive for tourists. This is a great spot for drunk teenagers only, since discos don't stop until the morning. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #9 of the "Best beaches in Yucatan"
