Went to the Myan Beach Club - got chairs & umbrella for free with 600 peso food and drink tab. Had a blast.

A beautiful beach worth waiting for! The water was shallow walking out for quite a distance. Th kids loved playing in the sand and waves. A great place for family fun.

For such a small island, the beaches are outstanding and the little shops are fun, too. They have several beachside and inland restaurants that we couldn't try them all out in our week there. Can't wait to go back. Playa Norte is the way to...More

Beautiful beach, really crowded on Sunday, but that's to be expected, because the locals use it with their families. The water color is exquisite, and it's great for those who don't want to go out in deep water, as it's quite shallow.

After driving (golf cart) through the entire island, you want to be at Playa Norte to find white sandy beaches. We found a spot right next to a pier and behind a natural wave breaker. The water was crystal clear and you can walk around...More

Not what it once was. Over-crowded, and the proliferation and AMOUNT of boats docking a mere 300' from shore, obscure the once awesome views. Each boat competes with one another with their on-board DJ and the extra bodies brought onshore make it even more crowded....More
