“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Beautiful cool, white, powdery beach. If only it were bigger. Can get a bit crowded. Keep in mind that all beaches in Isla are public. Ixchel Beach Hotel and Condo have their own beach chairs for guests only and service too. Towels are included. Beach is maintained nicely.

“Amazing Beauty”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The sand is pure white and soft. The water clean, clear and crystal blue. Beach Chairs and umbrella rentals with restaurants to serve you cold drinks and food. It's very busy in peak season and holidays with tourists and locals. No fish for snorkeling.

“Sugar sand”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Look around for the mellow areas, buy lot's of goodies from the hard working vendors and enjoy!
Ixchel is the busiest and most congested.
