A place to see

This is the farthest east point in Mexico, you can walk down to the point of the island and there is a plack that states that the sun each morning hits Mexico at that point, cool.

While it is a beautiful place, and the vistas awesome, I would not consider it a 'must see'. Having been to Tulum and Chichen Itza, do not go expecting serious ruins. It a quirky little park, full of decaying sculptures. We ate lunch at the restaurant and chose unwisely, super nachos with shrimp. They used ballpark/theater nacho cheese as the... More

The ruins are small, but beautiful. The sculpture garden is lovely. And the views are spectacular. I'd recommend allowing at least 2 hours here as there's too much to see.

This park is beautiful the sculptures all look amazing with the backdrop of the Majestic ocean. The restaurant is delicious and one of the best margaritas on the island. There are iguanas running around everywhere on the Ocean Breeze feels fabulous. Just be careful the railings aren't great and one of them actually fell while I was there.

We rented a golf cart and drove down to Punta SUr one day. Awesome views and beautiful little spot. There is a great restaurant and patio there. Great view of Cancun. We also drove down for the sunrise. SO beautiful

THIS IS NOT A BEACH. Don't do what we did and roll up with all your beach equipment haha however, the views from Punta Sur were breathtaking. Such a picturesque place to be! There are so many LARGE iguanas sunbathing out there too. Such an interesting place to see. The island is only 5 or so miles long, you must... More

This is a great spot to spend the afternoon, or to watch the sun rise. The views are spectacular. Cant beat the $3 entrance fee to hike the trails and look at all the art.

This place is definitely a must see! It is so beautiful, the views from the cliffs are absolutely breathtaking. You have to pay a small fee to go in, which comes out half the price if you pay in Mexican pesos (3USD vs 30MX), it is more than worth its price. We took lots of pictures and went down for... More

We visited here as a part of our golf cart tour of the island. Pay the entry fee to go and walk all the trails out at the point. The views are incredible and worth the HOT walk. A must see of the island.

Would suggest going here when it's not super hot as I did not see any good spot to get in the water. There are walking paths through the park with many great photo ops but it is rocky and a bit rough. There are some little gift shops with drinks/snacks. I think there was a little restaurant as well.
