|East beaches (Playa Blanca, Los Cocos & Tortuga)
These are endless beaches of fine sand and crystal-clear waters stretching on the east side of the hotel's zone.
This untouched natural environment provides refuge for hundreds of birds (such as sea gulls, pelicans, cormorants, etc.), iguanas and sea turtles.
Big and lazy iguanas rest on the rocks overhanging the beach. Playa Blanca has many tiny coves. The water is shallow. At Playa Tortuga hundreds of sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs on the bank.
These three beaches are less wider than the ones at the West side of the Island (Paraiso & Sirena), but they offer the same quality of white sand, never too hot, and turquoise warm waters with a soft underwater incline. You can walk for hours and feel like you are alone in this world!
If you wish to venture on the deserted beaches of the east or from the Sol Cayo Largo down to Playa Paraiso, it is important to bring with you a good supply of water, sunscreen, hat and even a sarong to cover you up, because under a blazing sun, the risk of burns is very high especially in areas that are not accustomed to being exposed to the sun. Be careful!
During the hurricane season (fall), these beaches are usually the most affected, so their aspect can change greatly from year to year due to beach erosion. They are virgin beaches and not clean like the beach in front of the hotels.
A long walk towards east — Playa Los Cocos (no trees, very dry environment)
The end east of Playa Tortuga (almost no beach to walk there)
