Royal Caribbean’s New Beach Club Destination: Mexico
If you’ve already enjoyed a Perfect Day at Coco Cay, you’re ready for the next exclusive Royal Caribbean International beach club experience, opening in 2026. Royal Beach Club Cozumel will mark the first of the cruise line’s private beach destinations in Mexico.
The world’s largest cruise line, with the world’s largest ships, including the recently-inaugurated Icon of the Seas, has revealed plans for putting Cozumel on the map for its cruise guests sailing Western Caribbean itineraries.
The Royal Beach Club Cozumel will be located along the western coast of the island of Cozumel, and according to Royal Caribbean cruise officials, it’s designed to meet growing demand for private beach destinations in the cruise line’s tropical destinations.
Perfect Day at Coco Cay set a new standard for mega-ship private islands after a $250-million transformation in 2019. It occupies a private island in the Bahamas, and recently opened the adults-only Hideaway Beach.
But that’s not the only way Royal Caribbean is offering exclusive beach experiences to its guests. There’s already one of the new Royal Beach Club Collection of destinations underway: the upcoming Royal Beach Club Paradise Island in The Bahamas, opening in 2025. It’s a 17-acre Bahamian beach experience located on Nassau’s Paradise Island, and it’s setting the model for subsequent “Royal Beach Club” experiences like Cozumel – and showing cruise travelers that Royal Caribbean is looking for different ways to offer guests a perfect vacation day in The Bahamas, the eastern and now, western Caribbean.
Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said during the announcement of the new Royal Beach Club Cozumel that, “Cozumel is an incredible destination, and the beach club will perfectly complement all the island has to offer as an experience that combines familiar Royal Caribbean touches with the spirit of Mexico, alongside amenities and activities for every type of vacationer.”

Featuring striking beaches, views and pools for every level of activity or relaxation that a Royal Caribbean cruise traveler could hope for, Royal Beach Club Cozumel will welcome vacationers to their ultimate beach day in Mexico, in the cruise line’s signature style.
Experiences range from kicking back to adventuring across swim-up bars, dedicated pools for relaxation enthusiasts and families, private cabanas, snorkeling, kayaking, and more.
And for a taste of Mexico and quintessential beach day favorites, coming to the table will be a variety of dining spots like a restaurant, bar and loungewith views – and flavors – for days and a street market as well as hands-on experiences like tequila tastings and cooking classes.
The cruise line is collaborating with local government to ensure everyone benefits from the new Royal Beach Club, with the governor of Quntana Roo calling the project, “modern and sustainable infrastructure… (that will) create local jobs for our people. These kinds of projects reaffirm our commitment to continue to be the top port of call in Latin America.”
More details about Royal Beach Club Cozumel, the latest in the cruise line’s growing lineup of exclusive beach destinations for its guests, will be revealed as it proceeds towards its 2026 opening date.
