A fresh breeze, the warm sea only steps away, and you – relaxing on a shady sunbed in the soft white sand, tasty cocktail in hand and your food being whipped up on the barbeque to be brought directly to your private spot in paradise. Is this what you are imagining for your vacation in Holbox? El Velero Beach Club has all of this and more.
Situated in the small, but spacious Hotel Puerto Holbox, this wonderful relaxed beach club has an ideal location in that it is on the more private side of Holbox’s wonderful beach, but is only a few blocks on foot to the centre of town. El Velero, sail boat in English, has everything you could need from a paradisiacal beach club – plenty of comfortable sunbeds covered with iconic sails for shade, showers and toilets, fresh towels, and of course, a team of friendly wait staff who will keep your glasses topped up and your bellies full.
Their restaurant is open from breakfast until early evening. It has a range of delicious dishes, including snacks, such as sandwiches, burgers, and their special seasoned potato wedges, as well as more gourmet-style options like a Sabana de Pescado – a tempura of slices of fresh fish of the day served with a yummy green salad with a habanero chilli and pineapple dressing. El Velero also offers an extensive drinks menu of national and international beers, fresh juices and smoothies, and scrumptious signature cocktails.
And don’t forget, you can also get a beach massage, rent bicycles and kayaks, and even have a fun game of ping pong.
