Nothing compares to the crystal clear waters and gentle waves that contrast perfectly with the white sand of the beaches of Isla Mujeres. Walking with your partner right by the beach, admiring the sunset, being surrounded by the island's romantic and relaxing vibes, will take your breath away!
The best beach on the island is Playa Norte, ranked as one of The 10 Best Beaches in the World, and as its name suggests, it is located on the north shore. The reason behind the color of its waters is the proximity of the reef to the shore, which makes this beach a true paradise of fine sand and shallow waters. Spend the day at one of its many beach clubs, admiring the imposing Caribbean Sea underneath a palapa, while having a refreshing drink and delicious seafood dishes.
Playa Centro and Playa Albatros are some of the other beaches that are ideal for soaking up the sun under the palm trees. These beaches have the Blue Flag certification which is given to beaches that meet and maintain a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety, and accessibility criteria. Located 18 miles away from Isla Mujeres is Isla Contoy, a tiny unspoiled island, an important bird sanctuary with beautiful lagoons, lush jungle and idyllic beaches.
