While staying with friends in Cancun, we looked for a good public beach and we found Playa Delfines to be the perfect beach for us. Easy to reach by bus from downtown Cancun (R1 at a cost of 10.5 pesos, with a bus every few minutes) Fine Sandy beach Facilities are neat Food available right on the beach from local... More

We walked from our resort to playa Delfines and unfortunately found it to be dirty and not well kept. The sea weed had not been cleaned and there was trash on the beach. There were many families using the beach and there should have been some trash management present to take care of this. Next time will stay in our... More

Playa Delfines is also recognized as public beach in Cancun. But just because the access can be done without passing by a resort. The water is so blue, white sand, typical beauty of Cancun.

Beautiful beach, clean, peaceful and safe! We visited as part of our long morning walk down from the Sun Palace. Did not see where you could get inexpensive massages but will check this out next time.

This is a public beach at the end of the long hotel zone. The sand is sugary soft and white and the water is a deep turquoise blue. They have facilities. You can buy some drinks and snacks at the close by oxxo and enjoy a nice day at this beautiful beach. My wife and I would recommend this beach... More

Nice place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of your hotel noise. Pass by during the week when there aren't as many people. Nice and clean, and there is a massage table there. Great massage for a 1/4 of the price you would pay at your hotel.
