The tropical paradise of Playa Norte occupies a scenic spot on an island once considered the sanctuary of Mayan goddess Ix Chel. Shaded by tall palm trees, the soft white sand provides enough space for playing sports or hosting a party, while the turquoise sea remains as calm as a lake. Snorkel or swim in the inviting shallow water, which teems with fish and other colorful marine creatures. Beach bars provide refreshments and rent out lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Several larger eateries along the water will give you access to changing facilities with any purchase of food and drink.

Playa Norte reviews
The beach is beautiful and the people are all in festive vibe to have wonderful time. Some of the best sunsets will be seen from playa Norte. Enjoy the views more »
The beach is beautiful, soft sand, clear water, only thing I didn't like is all boats who dock close by, otherwise it's a paradise more »
Beautiful, calm, blue, shallow water. The sand is really soft. While I wouldn't suggest letting your stuff out of eyesight, we never saw anybody so much as look at our stuff let alone touch it. It was really nice. :)
Playa Norte has it all: fine white sand, the most beautiful ocean colors I’ve ever seen at a beach. It’s a versatile place: you can either bring your own beach supplies and chill unbothered by the water, or pick one of the many nearby bars and beach clubs for food and drinks service. Look out for the sand strips on the right hand side of the beach, close to the island resort: that’s where you’ll find the bluest, clearest water.
