I loved this beach. It's fairly long so you can choose to sit somewhere not completely crowded. I definitely recommend going to the beaches that don't charge for use of the chairs as long as you order food and/or drink. Just get a bucket of beer, lounge in the chair, and cool off in the turquoise water when needed.

Wonderful place, avoid being ripped off by local tours into paying to go here, you can just walk and have a great time with your family or friends.

We spent two days last week on Playa Norte. The water is perfect and the sand is perfect. Very easy entry and exit for senior citizens. You don't have to be a mountain climber to get out of the water. The waves are very gentle, and there are none of those irritating pebbles and rocks. You can just walk out a few yards and pick up your feet and float to your heart's content. You can also snorkel or rent those big bicycles and paddleboards. Loungers and tables with chairs are available and there are several restaurants that will serve cold drinks and food right on the beach. It was not crowded or noisy at all, but we were there on weekdays, so weekends may be different. I will definitely revisit Playa Norte.

A typical tourist beach--lots of people and noise. We had a beer at the bar we found along the edge (with adult swings!) and went on our way...

The beach is absolutely stunning - turquoise water, white sand and mostly calm - what more can you ask for.

It is also very quite compared to Cancun's beaches or Playa Del Carmen.

Isla's Playa del Norte is one of the best beaches I have been to both in MX and worldwide, it's an adorable tropical get away and definitely a destination worthy of a return visit in the near future!

Highly recommended.
