Playa Tortugas is a very nice and well kept beach. The water is always nice and never too rough. The beach bar is always a must visit.

This is a very busy beach including ferry traffic (Ultramar ferry to Isla Mujeres) and large pier with restaurants and souvenir shops. If you are looking for clear, clean water, some surf and wide sand beaches, then head south on Kekulcan to Playa Delfines and...More

There are other beaches less packed. You have to pay to use the restroom as well. Almost no space to relax.
