AMAZING!

Beautiful beach! Great for paddle boarding or just lounging! Get there early as it can get crowded in the late morning/afternoon. this also depends of what time of year you go.

Best approached by Rueda Hidalgo or R.Guarrez, North Beach is simply stunning. You can rent beds or bring your own towel and set yourself up for many hours of pure relaxation in a stunning location.

A beautiful beach on Isla Mujeres. Truly one of my favorites because the color of the water transitions through amazing green and emerald tones. There is no surf so it's a very nice for wading, hanging out and cooling off.

This place is great. Lots of bars & restaurants close by. This is the beach where you can walk out about 1/4 mile and the water will only be up to waist/chest. Very shallow or walk down a little ways to enjoy mild waives.

This area is just awesome. You can walk out into the water for what seems like forever and it is only to your waist. Clear and beautiful water. Very crowded, but always a spot to be found somewhere.

Everything folks have already mentioned: crystal clear aqua blue water, soothing waves, soft white sand. The shallow waters extend quite a distance before it becomes too deep to stand. Fun to people watch and see the many boats that throw anchor at the shores edge. Bring a towel to sit on or rent a chair or chaise. The waiters will... More

Beautiful beach, beautiful water. Rented a paddle board. We enjoyed the beach, but the paddle boards were flimsy and cheap, unlike what we rented in Caymans.
