Shark Beach, Isla Mujeres

1.0
#5 of 8 in Parks in Isla Mujeres
Get up close and personal with the apex predators of the ocean at Shark Beach. Head to fenced-off swimming areas where you can feed and swim with subdued sharks. The local beach is graced with crystal clear water and soft sand; you can work on your tan from the shoreline or safely swim in shark-free water. Thankfully, the only sharks here live in pools surrounded by nets. Complete your visit by heading over to one of many beachside restaurants, where you can dine on authentic, traditionally prepared cuisine. Make Shark Beach a centerpiece of your Isla Mujeres vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Isla Mujeres road trip planner.
