Immerse yourself in the busy beach at Playa Tortugas, a sandy strip lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars.

When the mood strikes you, wander over to one of the lively beach bars to listen to dance music and enjoy an ice cold beverage.

  • Really good place, you can take good photos with friends.
  • relatively uncrowded. decent off shore snorkeling. clear yet kind of cloudy waters. free (?) seats with umbrella behind ocean spa hotel. this is a cute lil public beach between many boat docks. i was debating between a 4 and 5 star rating, and decided to go with 4. while this is a nice beach, it isn’t absolutely breath taking like some others.
