Eh, nice beach. Not really sure what all the histrionics are about. It's a nice beach period. There are plenty of nicer in the area, but I guess this one is convenient for those who don't want to venture too far from the buffet in their hotels.

Cancun sign is a popular photo opp place with the ocean as a backdrop. Never see exercise equipment on a beach. Bring your own toilet paper for the public restrooms. Walked all along the beach to our resort. Great views of the hotel zone

This beach has a blue flag certification, and that means that meets its stringent standards. It has showers and toilets, playground and a few exercise equipment. The view is amazing at this beach. There is a gazebo where you can appreciate the blue colours of the ocean. You can also find the CANCUN colourful sign, that is becoming very popular... More
