My favorite entrance to Playa Norte is located in between the two Ixchel condo towers at the northern end of Hidalgo. I always take multiple shots of these guys in the FeliPez beach rental hut, and the guy in the chair always performs his bunny ears for me. Someday I need to introduce myself!

This photo is Fenix Beach Club across from the new Mia at the eastern end of Playa Norte. I've heard they'll be moving. The palapas in the distance are in front of NaBalam Hotel. The area below on the other side of the bridge next to Fenix was formerly known as the Avalon Cove.
The bridge now leads to the new Mia Reef Hotel.
The famous House on the Rocks (privately owned by a local family) sits on the edge of the reef that forms the entrance to the cove.
The beach in between Tarzan's and Maria del Mar shown here had seaweed at the shoreline deposited by a recent Norte. Loungers in this area can be rented from a concession, or you can bring your own chair or towel!
The Chimbo's entrance at the end of Guerrero.
Waves lapping at Chi Chi's palapa.
Here's a nostalgic glimpse of the remains of Sergio's Playa del Sol. A new beach club's been rumored here for years.
