There were so many people scattered on this beach that I could not walk to the ocean. There are other beaches on Isla Mujeres that are just as nice, with a bit of seaweed, without any people! It was beautiful but impossible to enjoy.

This beach is very pretty early in the morning when it's not crowded. The later in the day it gets the more crowded it gets. I was however disappointed to see as much sea weed as I did. There is a spot out in front...More

It gets crowded on the high season, but there is a reason for this. It's the nicest easily accessible beach. Plus amongst the only ones not affected by the algue problem the island and Yucatan has been encountering.
