Playacar beach is a long stretch of fine white sand located in Playa del Carmen. The beach has a reserved area for all-inclusive resorts but there is also a section which is free for the public to use.
The list of facilities is extensive and includes sun loungers, parasols, showers and lifeguards.
There are plenty of watersports on offer at Playacar such as snorkelling, diving, jet skiing, parasailing and yachting. On most days of the year Playacar is safe for swimming, however there can be very windy days and strong currents due to little protection.
A word of warning, Playacar does not have any public restaurants on the beach so bring your own snacks and water if you are thinking of spending the whole day here.
Playacar is very child friendly. The beach is clean and soft, making it perfect for building sand castles! Children can also enjoy paddling in the sea or body boarding!
