Most beach clubs along the east coast cater to day-trippers on booze cruises from Cancún. This lovely compound away from the noisy areas is the exception. Anchors, buoys, ship lanterns, and metal sculptures are scattered about park-like lawns leading to a restaurant serving seafood, pastas, and other fare far above the quality at most beach clubs A pristine long beach is lined with small palapas and lounge chairs, and the water here is clear and calm. A museum dedicated to Capitán Dulché, who spearheaded the development of the island’s first pier, displays historic photos, intricate model ships, and other nautical memorabilia; guided tours cost 50 pesos. The complex is sometimes closed for private functions and weddings, but is usually open daily from 10am-6pm.
