Which is better.... Paradise beach or Playa Mia ?
Mr Sanchos lost a lot of sand right at the water line during Hurricane Wilma. In fact, it is not uncommon for the beach resorts on the West side to have this kind of issue since Wilma.
At Paradise Beach, you can enter the water at the NORTH end without water shoes but if you are entering anywhere else, I would use water shoes.
Paradise Beach also has a brand new huge pool with chairs IN the water....
The main difference between Paradise Beach and Playa is that Playa charges an entrance fee and Paradise Beach does not.
Paradise Beach has a $2 lounge chair charge ... but we usually sit under the papala...so we don't use a lounge chair.
Paradise Beach also has an OPTIONAL wristband for $12 to use all the nonmotorized water and land toys....the boys always get the wristband..hubby and I do not.
I like having the OPTION.
