Beautiful Beach

Prettiest beach and water. Sunsets from here are breath taking. Friends had a wedding and was spectacular. The sand is smooth in the water no water shoes needed.

The beach has beautiful cool waters and this is THE beach in Isla Mujeres. You don't have to be a hotel guest to use the beach and there are numerous beach side bars and lounging chairs for rent. You can also rent a paddle boat if you want. The waters here are very clear and the white sandy beaches are... More

Loved being with the locals and the beach. Did not dislike anything. Restaurants were nearby. Loved being able to rent a bike and golf car.

Of course you have to go to Playa Norte, and you should! Just know that the water is shallow and it can be crowded. But it is lovely. I do think there are lovelier parts of the island but I like to be off the beaten path. If you love to go where everyone else is, you will give this... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful and very lazy afternoon here relaxing on lounge chairs, taking dips into the crystal blue waters, and drinking pina coladas. There were a lot of people here, but I really don't think it detracted from the beauty at all. No wonder this is rated one of the 10 best beaches in the world!

Two little ones had their best day at the beach since they could swim thinking that they were in a swimming pool. Enjoyed it very much. It is only 80cm deep or less for most part so the kids were loving it. Cristal waters, white sand. 60 pesos per sun bed to rent for the day

Fantastic sand, clean water, nice wibes, no rip tides. Best place to relax, swim, look at people having fun, have a drink and just do nothing!

Perfect beach. Breathtaking sunset. Able to find a spot at any time of day and can walk up from restaurans/bars. Leave your bag in the sand and lay out along the shore for free for hours.
