This beach it's beautiful, love the turquoise waters and the clean beach. It doesn't have a lot of parking, so we just stayed for a few minutes and took some pictures. It has a nice playground for the kids.

We visited Playa Delfines in September. We rode a collectivo from our hotel (The Grand Mayan) to Cancun. From the collectivo terminal it was fairly easy to ride a bus from Downtown Cancun to The Hotel Zone where Playa Delfines is, just inform the bus driver that you wish to be dropped off at Playa Delfines and he'll tell you...

We stayed at the Westin Lagunamar and stopped by this beach but honestly it is not really much different than the rest of the hotel zone beach or at least our beach in front of the Westin. If not staying in this area it is a nice stop but if staying in the area/hotel zone... not much of a difference.... More

Beautiful public beach. If your hotel doesn't have a private beach this is a great alternative with free umbrellas (pala. If you plan on getting in the water, beware of the rough waters.

This was a huge public beach. Although I had read reviews that there were refreshment stands, I never saw any so that was a disappointment as there was nowhere nearby to get refreshments.. There were restrooms available. The view and white sand are great, and the little shade grass umbrellas dot the beach and are nice.

Delfines beach is a very popular beach with turquoise, white sands and transparent waters. The bathing water is turbulent and this beach ideal for surfing. Unlike the other beaches such as Caracol Beach and the Tortugas, is that it is not close to the major hotels!
