“Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we have visited! The water is crystal clear, and calm. The beach has the softest powdery white sand. You can always catch the most amazing sunsets on this fabulous beach.

“Best beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The surf is very calm all day long; the sand on the beach has a soft texture and isn't sticky; plenty of chairs and umbrellas at low rental cost; the bar and food service was very good. Be aware that there was a handful of topless female sunbathers, if you are sensitive to that or don't want your children around it.

“The best beach in Isla Mujeres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We stayed at Nautibeach, and it is just the best spot in the Island. Around the Island there are many more nice places, but most of them with no access to the beach or with rocks that you can't really swim.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

I've spent many of months on Isla and never really hung out on North beach. Did it the last 5 days and it was pretty awesome. Shallow calm water of Caribbean turquoise colors. 2x1 drinks everywhere, some places are weak, but the views are awesome!
