“Amazing soft, white sand”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stayed at Privilege Aluxes on Playa Norte. The beach was deep (at least 30 yards from water's edge to the back of the beach) and the sand was some of the best we've ever experienced - soft, white, fine, no rocks or shells. The beach entry was the same - no water shoes needed here.

“Most beautiful beach in Mexico”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

A beautifully quiet and tranquil beach with great palapa bars. And when you are tired of the beach just walk a few steps into town and shop or have a drink.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Prettiest beach I've even seen. The water is incredible. Not too busy during the week when we were there. Plenty of places to get food and drinks. Chairs and beds to rent. Go around the corner at the Avalon bridge and you can see lots of fish with a snorkel mask.
