Spend a whole day there enjoying the sand, the sun and the beach, Best restaurant around is called Tarzan. A perfect paradise just few minutes away from downtown.

“Beautiful beach, excellent for families with children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

A beautiful beach, very fine sand, low water makes it perfect for children. Not to crowded when we visited just after Christmas 2012. Easy to find a place at the beach and easy to find a café or restaurant to get refreshments. The fruitjuices and smoothies are just delicious all the places we tried.

“Very crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

I visited this beach 10 yrs ago and went back this year. It has changed and been "discovered" , very crowded now and full of beach chairs from the large resorts. Still great for swimming and walking at night time when the crowds are gone.

“Great beach for the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Very calm water which is perfect for our 4 and 7 year olds. Nice powdery sand along an expansive white sand beach. After departing the ferry terminal make a left and walk a short way to the beach. Be prepared to shoo the ever present hawkers. Negotiated a golf cart for 3 hours for $36 and drove around the island.

“The best beach in Isla Mujeres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Definitely, the very best and most beautiful beach in Isla Mujeres. The classical paridisiac beach landscape can be found here. Super soft white sand, gorgeous turquoise color of the water and you can walk and walk deep inside and the water level will be at waist level at most. Perfect beach to enjoy with kids who dont know to swim as it is, literally a pool. As it is the best beach, it is crowded yes but it is a public beach and in general I found it clean and well organized to be enjoyed by everybody.
