When visiting the island, the beach options are endless, so pick up a golf cart or mountain bike and spend the day wandering the coastline. Playa Norte is the most popular beach in Isla Mujeres, you will love it for its warm, shallow water.

No matter what your choice is, you will certainly find a beach club to spend the day in or the perfect spot to lay your beach towel down and enjoy the view.
