It is a really small beach, in between the hotels... There's not chairs or umbrella or anything, the water wasn't that cute. It would recommend forum beach instead, not worth the time

We visit this beach and it’s quiet still waters to swim to Isla Mujeres - as a part of El Cruce. Beaches on the Lower side of the hotel zone have more waves and currents that can be worrisome for parents.

A small, yet great beach on north end of zona hotelera. Clean, and never a lot of people on the beach either. Not as big as Delfines Beach, but just as nice. Cheap to rent beach chairs also. Also close to shops & clubs.
