Rented a car for a day from Playa del Carmen and i was looking for a nice beach to enjoy with my wife and daughter. Wow!!! 4 tint turquoise ocean color... beautiful white sand... large (extra large) beach with free palapas to get a bit of shade... what can you ask more? Yeap... true little beach gem. :)))

Nice beach...clean...not too crowded...not to far from the center of Cancun... If you visit you must take a picture with colorful sign CANCUN:) For ancient history lovers - the Mayan ruins El Rey is located across the street

Very clean, lots of parking, on the R1 and R2 bus routes, lots of facilities, beautiful beach and crystal clear blue water. Worth a day trip if your beach isn't as idyllic!
