Nice but relatively small beach with beach bars (I paid about €7 for a snack lunch and 2 non-alcoholic drinks and could take one of their sunbeds). Right next to the Isla Mujeres ferry station.

Small beach, Very crowded. Good food options. Calm waters. Some rocks along the bottom and seaweed further out. IF looking for a quieter beach with calm waters, consider Marlin Beach just a little further East.

Small shops and a couple bars line the path to catch the Ultramar ferry across to Isla Mujeres. If so inclined, and the wind allows, bungie jump over the water. A few shots of tequila and off you go!
