I like everything, the water crystal clear, warm, can walk and seat with your chair and take a sun bath perfect. Is many differents tours and attractions, you can skorkling or just relax on the best ocean's water like what I did.

but so incredibly crowded! If you want to be at a crowded beach, save the ferry fare and stay in Cancun.

Relaxing and family safe with some beach access snorkeling. Many places to choose from to spread a towel, rent a lounger and umbrella, or grab a bite to eat.

Breathtaking colors of turquoise and blue as well as the clearest water you can imagine. Playa Norte is so relaxing with minimal vendors on th beach. It is very clean and just a short 5 minute walk from downtown.

We just loved this beach. The sand was white and silky. The sea was clear and warm (even in winter). We loved swimming and swimming. There was a nice atmosphere.

Spent all 3 days of our visit here. An amazing beach! You can find shade to lay out under palm trees - no need to pay $15 for beach chairs and an umbrella

Grab a cold drink, wade out into the cool, shallow, gin-clear water and watch the coconut palms sway in the breeze. How in the world could life be any better? We're from Florida and enjoy our beaches but there is something special about this laid-back beach that relaxes every bone in your body. Truly paradise........

Loved the beach and the ocean here. Great place to watch the sunset. Food and drinks were good every place I tried. Tarzan was fun!
