Playa Tiburón (Shark Beach)
Playa Tiburón (Shark Beach) Review
Like Playa Lancheros, Playa Tiburón (Shark Beach) is on the west side of the island facing Bahía de Mujeres, and so its waters are also exceptionally calm. Once a respite from the crowds, this has become a more developed beach, with a large, popular seafood restaurant (through which you actually enter the beach) that serves burgers, hot dogs, and fish. There are several souvenir stands selling the usual T-shirts, as well as handmade seashell jewelry. On certain days you can find women who will braid your hair or give you a henna tattoo. This beach also has two sea pens with sleepy and relatively tame nurse sharks. Swim with them for $2 or just snap a photo. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
