Such a gorgeous beach, clean, safe, and highly recommended. If you surf, it is on occasion that a decent swell rolls through. 4-5 ft nice shore breaks if you find them and yes my friends you can get barreled!

Easy to access, stay on the R2 for a long time. If you're observant, you'll see signs for it in the median. I

One helluva beach - view is something to behold. Nothing there to buy a drink so take one with you. If you need to take a photo alongside the coloured Cancun sign be prepared to wait or jostle with other tourists. Easy to take a bus to from within Hotel Zone just take next stop after Iberostar Hotel

The view of the beach from the look out point "mirador" is great. There are many shades of blue. I only stopped her for a picture by the Cancun sign on my way to the hotel.

Very pretty, not so crowded and lots of shells all over! If you are looking for a clean beach with less people, I say this is a good location at the end of the hotel zone!

The problem with this beach is that it is reall far away from the main hotel zone. I was staying near the Club area where the beaches are not that great like this one. This beach has a great view and palms trees for free. They have bathrooms and overall seems clean. I gave this beach a very low rating... More
