We had to ride the bus for 15 minutes to get here (while other beaches were a 5 minute walk), and it was worth it. The beach was very quite when we were there, and it is the perfect place to relax.

Our hotel (Iberostar Cancun) was situated on Playa Delfines and the beach stretches far and wide (but it changes name/ shape as you from North to South).

We have tried a few beaches and unfortunately most of them are full of "herbs" in the water. This one was the best we found. The sand is pure white and the water has a great color. You can take pictures near the beach in front of the letters CANCUN

This is a beautiful beach, although the water is not safe to swim in. It is also where the Cancun sign is making it great for photo ops.
