That is something that I may work towards but you must be clear in your grading criteria. Just based upon the sand part it is perhaps a 5. Water clarity brings it up a bit. If you like snorkeling that adds to its rating (but detracts if you hate ironshore). Then are you only comparing Cozumel beaches or beaches worldwide? The former would be an easier task for me.

Here are some pics so you can judge yourself:

I agree 5-6 it's rocky getting into the water, it's not real clear, at least not the days I snorkeled there. The sand is nice, not real wide, but wide enough for a couple of rows of beach chairs. The service at El Coz is top notch.

If they ever receive more sand from the sand harvesting project, and return the beach to its old self, I would up the rating to a 7.

It would then have a little bit of everything. Nice swimming, good snorkeling, and calm, clear water. The water not being clear would be a rare exception as it has always been crystal clear the many times I have been there.

The negatives would be width of beach and the sand not being as fine as in Cancun or Playa.

I would rate the beach there about a 7. The water is clear, snorkelling good, but entry can be challeging due to the ironshore. Please wear water shoes! When I was there late November, the waiters did offer beach service. I also noticed bits of glass that must have been brought i with the sand. All in all, Elcoz still gets my vote.

The El Coz is our all around favorite resort. The resorts in the south have nicer beaches but the snorkeling at the Coz gives it my overall vote. We also like the rooms better and the food is good. Also being close to town helps.
