One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Walk all the way back and forth before picking your spot to stop at. Plenty of good food served right at the beach chairs.

One of the best beaches in the world! Powder white sand beaches and gorgeous water. If you love beaches you will love Playa Norte.

If you can keep clear of all the sales people and message offers, this is a beautiful beach with warm water and great views.

It is a very nice beach but not all that big. There was not much space to move around. The people watching was very good because the beach is so small. Lots of good food around.

Visited here with a group of friends while in Cancun area. What a gorgeous place! Beautiful white sands and clear water! It definitely gets busy here, but that does not take away from it at all. I definitely want to visit this spot again!

Don’t hire a cart- it takes 5 minutes to walk and though the sidewalks are narrow and busy in the afternoon- it would be more stressful from what I saw to take time to hire a cart and then be amongst all the people driving... More

According to the map, you can easily walk to the Mia Reef - it is probably a 1/2 mile or less. Easy walking - also you can take a cab - make sure you get pesos - there is a bank - just north of the ferry station that has... More

I really liked Isla Caracol, close to Playa Norte and the restaurant area. Very friendly staff and daily cleaning.
