The beach site is worth taking an extra trip out of your Cancun vacation. The bluest water, the finest sand and it was not overrun by people. The small village, some call it city is picturesque and there is lots to see and also to buy. Take a walk along the seawall on the east side of the island and... More

This is an amazing beach, one of my favorite places! Sunbathe, take a dip in the warm Caribbean, watch the sunset! Enjoy this piece of heaven.

Great beach. Clean and plenty of room. Nice gradual walk out to gain depth. Wonderful view with small waves lapping in. Close to refreshments, music and food if you wish. Easy walk from most hotels on the Isla. Cheers

Clean beautiful beach, shallow water, beach chairs and bars. Need to stay at the beach resorts to get beach chairs but anyone can go to the beach bars.

One of the best combos of white sand, clear aquamarine water, and perfect water and air temperature anywhere

I stayed in Isla Mujeres for 3 days and went to this beach every day . The first day it was a little rough and windy. The other 2 days were beautiful. I rented a lounge chair and umbrella for 200pesos and had drinks brought to me on the beach. I was in heaven.

It's hard to enjoy a beach where you feel like you have to pay to stay. We found it way too crowded to enjoy. The rest of the island is too beautiful to miss out on.

Reading the recent reviews prompted me to write about this stunning beach. We took a trip from Cancun for the day and came across Playa Norte beach by chance after exploring the island on hired golf buggies.
