Turquoise Beach Bar Cozumel
You never can have enough sea-gazing hang out spots in your arsenal of beverage stop locations on the island! So let us add one more to the list for your complete relaxing pleasure.
Turquoise Beach Bar is located on Cozumel’s main drag (Rafael Melgar), which edges the western coast. It’s about a 5-minute drive south of downtown San Miguel, near the farthest international cruise ship terminal.
All open-air, Turquoise offers stellar views of the sea from their terrace above the beach. Stop by around sunset for incredible photo opportunities, with a deliciously crafted cocktail or martini in hand.
With rope swings completing the relaxed, fresh atmosphere, you might want to stay a while! We don’t blame you if you do!
Prefer to sit with your toes in the sand? There’s a little man-made sandy beach area next to their small saltwater plunge pool where you can sit & sip. This may be a better option if you plan to spend the day here and want to enjoy the lounge chairs, or if you just feel like cooling off.
There is a nice pier that extends into the sea for snorkelers and swimmers (the kids will like this), with some hammocks available out over the water as well. You are on the island of Cozumel, so of course there is dive equipment available to rent if you wish to snorkel or scuba dive right off the shore!
Turquoise also has a unique mascot that makes it a memorable stop beyond just the intense relaxation. Taluha, the little resident black pot-bellied pig, is kind of adorable! For those unsuspecting guests, it makes for quite an entertaining time as you watch them try and figure out why there is a pig walking around the beach!
No question, the main attraction here is the view, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the other perks, such as the live music. Once the beautiful sunset has faded into evening, you don’t necessarily have to run off. Enjoy an assortment of live music throughout the week.
Beyond their absolutely fantastic cocktails, there’s a full menu of Mexican-Italian cuisine as well, including lion fish fritters, delicious pork tacos, or whatever suits your fancy.
Truthfully, the point of a visit to Turquoise isn’t the food, drinks, music or even the little piggy, it is the combination of them all, with great friends and an unreal turquoise view!
