South Beach is distinguished by meters and meters of clean white sand. On that side the sea is a little colder and with huge waves. In Playa Norte the seawater feels warm. Depending on the day there will be some waves or you can swim as if you were in a natural pool. Sometimes you can see dolphins (a kind of delfin) swimming nearby, sea lions and very lucky noctilucas. The perfect place to disconnect from the cell phone and see perfect sunsets. Huge skies full of stars and movie moons.
