We had asked our hotel for a recommendation for a great clean enjoyable Beach. It was away from most tourist, served good food with good service. Reasonable prices to scuba, snorkel or rent a boat.

This is a gorgeaous beach. My friend and I traveled here from Playa del Carmen. It cost $40.00 round trip. We rented beach chairs with an umbrella. The water was super clear and fun for swimming. We enjoyed drinks from our lounge chairs and at the beach bar. I would love to return to this place some day.

My wife and I hopped on a Collectivo van (~25 pesos each) from Puerto Aventuras and really enjoyed our day here! Brought our own snorkeling gear (ok spot), swam a lot, strolled the beach, and just chilled. There are chairs at the "Beach Club," some are free with food/drink purchases, the nicer ones were 250 pesos each. The beers are... More

Looked like a screen saver! Clear water, snorkeling for free. Many different fish, coral, sting rays, jelly fish, sea turtles, and much, much more!

A nice day trip if you are looking for a local beach to visit. There is a beach club called LaPlaya Beach Club, down a bumpy dirt road, you can drive it if renting a car, or have the collectivo drop you off and walk in. They charge you to park your car or use their palapas or chairs located... More

Very nice white powdery clean sand. Safe swimming because of reef slightly off the coast. The beachside restaurant has good good and very professional and friendly staff. Some lounges available with restaurant service; some others available for 225 pesos for two. Entrance fee is waived on exit with proof of restaurant service.

Beautiful sandy beach that is remarkably undeveloped considering the area it's within. A couple of beach front bars that are reasonably (ish) priced or you can just bring a couple of beers with you and relax on the beach.

We visited this beach because the hotel we were staying at has a shuttle that takes guests to the beach club there. The road down to the beach is really bad and bumpy....so be prepared to go slow. The beach is stunning! If you go to the beach club, they will bug you to buy drinks, but if you act... More

This beach is so quiet and peaceful. It's so beautiful - if you get a chance to experience this beach - GO! You pay an entry of 40 pesos per person but can get it back with purchase. We bring lunch and buy beer buckets.
