Beautiful!

No rocks, just sand and really good restaurant nearby. It was crowded even with the big beach but can still swim freely.

Come early to avoid the crowds

The beaches are still beautiful and clean, but the north part of the island is way overpopulated. We even went to stay during the week and still find lot of tourists.

Lot of business in the beaches selling food, restaurants, chairs, umbrellas from the hotels. Then you have the boats coming from Cancun with lot of "party" people, putting loud music and park just right there next to the beach. Can't imagine all the trash that this beautiful beach is getting underground.

If you like to enjoy some privacy in the beach, then this island is not for you.

Chill/beautiful beach

Really beautiful and nice beach but small space to swim. The chairs and sunbrellas are only 200 pesos per person so it pays off to rent some. Also bring beer/drinks with you with a freezer from Oxxo :)

Fabulous!
Apr 2021
Best part of ANY island! Playa Norte is the best! On the North side gets a little warm as the breeze is minimal. Around the corner on the West side you get a fabulous breeze as you watch the sunset.

One of the best beaches we have been to in all our years of traveling. Super soft sand and calm water with the best colors. It’s a must see if you go to isla.
