This place is along the Hotel Zone. Great place to take pictures and have something to remember your time in Cancun. I just want to recommend to everyone who visit Cancun that you can see lots of places. We were in Cancun for a total of 4 days and 3 nights and we were able to see Chichen Itza, Playa... More

One of Cancun's few public beach, it's really beautiful and offers nice facilities (toilets, beach umbrellas, unfortunately no food), it's seems to be ADA friendly. Watch out for the dangerous currents, and don't forget to check out the Maya ruins basically across the street

The beach is nice. White sand and beautiful Caribbean water. A little dirty. There is a boardwalk of sorts leading down to the beach and a lot of them are split and sticking up like spears waiting to stab you. The waves are rough and run outs are a strong possibility. Still all in all a good experience. No towels... More

This beach was just a quick bus ride from our hotel. The beach at our apartment was beautiful and because it was a few kilometers from where we were staying it wasn't much different so we just went to check it out. It was a little busy but good. This is where the colorful CANCUN sign is. Lots of people... More

This beach is absolutely gorgeous and on the southern end of the hotel strip making it well away from the party area. It is a lovely family beach, although the waves are stronger than on many parts if you have small ones. The sound of the surf crashing is amazing and so relaxing. There must be some beach chair rentals... More

Cancun's beaches are getting more and more crowded and lined with high rises....ugh But the sand is still soft and beautiful. The water is clear and not cold! The grass roof shades are free to use but if you sit in a chair; they may ask you to buy a drink or pay for your seat.

I take all visitors to Cancun from the airport to their hotel or my home by way of Playa Delfines. Everyone enjoys the breathtaking view from the observation deck. For what its worth, the new rest area provided is clean and bright.
