PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club

Then we invite you to join us and our staff at PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club, located in the Dzul Ha Reef, for a nice, quiet and relaxing day in Cozumel. These days it seems like every beach club in Cozumel is so packed with tourists that visitors are often wanting and searching for a less crowded alternative. If you like a prefer a less chaotic and more personalized environment when visiting Cozumel, then our quiet and quaint PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club will be the perfect spot for you and your group to come spend the day! We really are the "Best Kept Secret in Cozumel"!!!.

PalMar Beach Club is located just a mile or so south of downtown San Miguel and is enclosed with walls, fences and gates on all sides. As PalMar sits in front of a 10,000 square foot private beachside residence it provides a unique feeling of a more home-style experience. Inside our walls you will find a freshwater swimming pool (great for novice snorkelers to practice their snorkeling techniques), Jacuzzi spa area, showers, rinse tanks, restrooms and lockers as well as available snorkel equipment gear (mask, snorkel and fins) and vests for rent. Surrounding the pool and spa areas is a large decked area with plenty of loungers, chairs and tables for your relaxation pleasure! The grounds inside feature both sunlit areas to soak up our "Caribbean Paradise" rays and also natural shady areas from the numerous trees for those needing to cool off.

You will also find our friendly and helpful staff ready to provide you and your group everything you need to make your stay at PalMar Beach Club a wonderful experience. You will find a quaint snack bar area where you will be able to purchase tasty freshly made-to-order snacks (guacamole, pico de gallo, ceviche, quesadillas, etc.) and a nice selection of beverages (bottled water, soda, beer and a selection of tropical mixed drinks). Our staff is always more than happy to make you a tasty snack or whip up some liquid refreshment during your time here at PalMar Beach Club!

PalMar's Beach and Ocean area is just a few steps outside our gates where you will see our beach area surrounded by a retaining wall filled with sand, palm trees, potted plants, loungers, tables and chairs for any guests that prefer a waterfront, beachside day in paradise There are no crazy jet skis buzzing around constantly nor massive water mountains to scale out front at PalMar Beach Club. Instead, we invite you to enjoy a relaxing day lounging on our beach under our palm trees! If you want to snorkel and swim in our world famous Dzul Ha Reef, you will find an abundance of incredible coral reefs, colorful fish and marine life here at PalMar! The beach-entry is a few steps down from our beach area directly into the pristine waters of the Caribbean. Do not forget to bring your underwater camera to memorize your time underwater! Plus our dedicated staff will keep a watch out for you on the beach and keep the drinks and snacks coming as you need them!

We can and do limit the number of guests inside to a maximum of fifty (50) at any given time to ensure a quality and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Sherri - Thank you so much for allowing us to use the Palmar Small Beach club. The staff were fantastic. They took very good care of us. The fresh pico was perfect. The grounds were very clean and beautiful. And no hassling salesmen anywhere. We plan on coming there again on our next visit to Cozumel. Thanks again - The Hamiltons G. & A.

We found this jewel of a place on our recent trip to Cozumel sailing on the Carnival Glory - such a beautiful estate type home with a large cement pool and beach access - we so enjoyed our day at Palmar. We also tried the chicken quesadillas, freshly made guacamole and pico de gallo with chips - delicious!!! I would highly recommend this stop on your next trip to Cozumel, especially if you want a relaxing day away from the crowd. We will plan to return! D. Bodenheimer - October 2015 ~ Denver, NC USA

Just wanted to tell you my wife and I have been coming to Cozumel for 20 years and we had one of our best days at your club yesterday. Enrique was great. Hoping you get your butterfly's back soon.... T. Higgins & S. Field-Feb 2015 ~ Hudson, WI USA

Last year we visited your Palamar beach club while on a cruise. We felt like we were in a true paradise. We are really into snorkeling so your location is tops on our list. You took the time to talk with us and tell us a bit about your self and the businesses you have. It was very good to meet and talk with you. We felt like we were visiting family and were treated as such. I am pleased to say that we are again coming in on a cruise and canít wait to return to paradise. I hope you are there so we can stop by and say hi if you are not too busy. T. Lemons ~ Cruise Passenger

We visited the beach club as part of the perks of staying at the IslaMar Villas as it is owned by the same person. I have to say what a wonderful experience. If you want to get away from the tourist beach clubs this is your place. The day we visited we had the beach area to ourselves ~ perfect snorkeling right of the beach. If the ocean isn't for you there is a large pool to use a few steps away along with change rooms and a bar. Staff were great ~ bringing our food and drinks we ordered over to us on the beach! Out visit got cut short due to weather but would definitely return again on our next trip to Cozumel. G. & J. - November 2015 ~ Elmira, ON, Canada
