This beach seems to be the one a lot of the locals come to. The water was calm when we went and it was so blue I wanted to cry. Seriously. When we come back with the kiddos, we will definitely take them here to have fun!

Used this beach access to catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres. What a beautiful beach!! The sand was white and fine and the water was turquoise and gorgeous. We didn't spend longer than 1/2 hour there but there were children playing and it was beautiful.

This is nice beach, great sand and beautiful water, with a really nice kid playground area. Looked like quite a number of locals were enjoying in addition of folks from the local hotels. Public bathrooms easily accessed.

Nice calm beach popular with the locals. You can rent a umbrella for 100 pesos and the water is very shallow. It is not as beautiful as the other beaches but it is a good one to go visit. It has restrooms and a play area for kids.

Right near some of the upscale hotels. Top of the 7 so it was a nice calm place to swim. Most of the beach is shaded by the hotels by late afternoon so go early if you want a long day in the sun.

Took the bus in the hotel Zone to this beach for a morning. We wanted to see what the ocean was like on the north side. Lovely calm turquoise water, a new playground for the kids, clean bathrooms and a cancun sign to take photos. The ferry dock to isla mujeres is here. A fun and low cost excursion!

I enjoyed snorkeling and swimming at this beach along with many local families. This beach is adjacent to two large beach hotels, so there was plenty of people-watching, too.

We spent an afternoon at Playa Langosta. Not too many people, a nice large area of shallow, clear water in which to swim. Wasn't bothered by any salespeople.
