Most beautiful views of the ocean are visible here. Went during the day during Spring Break, there was a huge crowd of people, but still plenty of room to find a nice spot to get comfortable. Water was on Red flag that day and there were rip currents so just be careful and stay close to where the lifeguards are.... More

You find the Cancun sign here. So you must go and take pictures. The sunset helps you take awesome pictures. There's a police station, lifeguard, and local guides helping you out on any request or questions. The beach has palapas, get there early and enjoy the great beach. There are benches, showers and bathrooms. All for free. So this is... More

Very nice and blue beach with smooth waves, access to public palapas at no extra cost, playing and picnic area available and clean public restrooms, good parking spots but not too many available close to the beach area, sunset is on the other side of the beach.

This is a beautiful beach and you can walk for miles. There are few exits along this beach because of hotels and condos that do not allow you to walk through their properties, so be prepared to walk a long way. I do not swim so I cannot comment on swimming. There are bathrooms at this beach.

This beach was amazing. My wife and I spent a lot of our time here while in Cancun. Never too crowded and the waters are stunning. We loved it! Watch out for half naked women doing photo shoots though, ha! Wasn't expecting that!

The contrast between the white sand and deep blue water can be appreciated from vantage points above the beach. Restrooms provided but not food.

That's what I remember, blue sky, turquoise waters and white sand. Even if there are hotels around and many people, it is a large beach area ; the landsacpe is beautiful, especially the colours. And one can see pelican birds flying around like seagulls in Europe..Exotic.

Beautiful beach. Spent a couple hours here. Enjoying the sunshine. The sand is very sticky. Better bring a bottle of baby powder to get rid of the sand.
