This was a huge public beach. Although I had read reviews that there were refreshment stands, I never saw any so that was a disappointment as there was nowhere nearby to get refreshments.. There were restrooms available. The view and white sand are great, and the little shade grass umbrellas dot the beach and are nice.

Delfines beach is a very popular beach with turquoise, white sands and transparent waters. The bathing water is turbulent and this beach ideal for surfing. Unlike the other beaches such as Caracol Beach and the Tortugas, is that it is not close to the major hotels!

Kids first time to do this and it is very memorable! Would not buy the pix, bc you have more opportunities to view them as they will email you. If you can go for the private tour this would be super worth it!

What can I say. It's clean, beautiful and public. I dare do say it's a better beach than what some big resorts have. It has bathrooms, showers, a playground, shade and occasionally some topless girls.

This is a vast expanse of unspoilt beach it's lovely but has no facilities so take your own chairs,blanket,food and drink. Couldn't find a toilet either! Very easy and cheap to get to on the bus that goes along the Cancun strip. We loved the diving pelicans
