“One of the top 10 beaches in the world it is said.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

And I believe it. You can walk and walk and only be up to your waist in water. The water is clean and the most beautiful color. The sand is white and soooo soft. And it's not too crowded. Plus there is lots of shade from the palm trees.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Great beach even when crowded. You do have to pay $10 for a bed, but it's worth it if you plan on staying all day. Definitely get lunch at Zazii Ha!

“Small but perfect”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

It is not as large of a beach as in Cancun, but the waves are just about right for a 4-8 year old. The sand is white and clean.

“Great beach”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Were able to walk up and down the beach; could walk out into the ocean 300 ft more or less and it was only up to an adult's waist. Not many vendors, so that was nice.

“Nice beach to relax”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Nice long beach located to the extreme north of Isla Mujeres.

Even if the sea is rough everywhere else on the island, it seems that it is always calm on Playa del Norte.

Just laying around and enjoying the view is the best way to conclude a visiting day on the island.

It is worth a stop.
