This is a beach that lies on the northwestern most corner of the island. It suffers greatly from changing currents and storms. One time you will go there and it has all been eroded. The next it will look like it did yesterday.
The beach is now incredibly huge. A vast stretch of white sand lapped gently by deliriously blue water.
I normally do not choose to go to this beach. For two reasons. First, it gets deep fast and there is a slight current that will pull at you as it rounds the corner of the island. Second, it is a tourist trap with all the chairs and umbrellas. Except, being the nice guy that Sergio is, he does not charge for the ones he provides....so long as you buy at least one beverage from him.
I saw yesterday that he has put up a new volleyball net. The last volleyball court is buried somewhere under all this sand.
He has a pier there also. Not many boats tie up to it but it is nice to walk out on and see the fishies. Some people even jump or dive from it! He has also opened his little swing bar on it. I wish I could have been in charge of the music blaring from it yesterday. First we had loud Reggaeton, then club music, then awful gangster rap stuff with the F word being shouted constantly from the speakers. When we left it was The Doors turn.
The view from my lounge chair.
I did spend quite a bit of time in the water. It was like being in a pool with a sandy bottom. So clear that you did not need a snorkel to see all the fish congregating around your feet, snatching at whatever little tidbits you stirred up in the sand.
Nevertheless, I did don my snorkel for a bit. I need to do that whenever I go in the water. Conditioning.
As you can see in the above picture, as well as this next one, clouds starting to roll in over Cancun. Which way would they travel?
I just had to take this picture, even though it is not the clearest I have ever taken. How many of you know that Isla has a logo? It is a seagull perched on a pole in the water. Here it is in real life.
Look how strangely the clouds blocked the sun. That line of demarcation is true. I did not retouch this photo (or any photo!) in any way.
