This is a stunning beach. No lounge chairs with music and waiters bringing you drinks and food, it's just beautiful sand, sun, and water. They do have umbrellas but you need to bring your own beach towels, chairs, and snacks. They also have restrooms for changing. Beautiful picture backdrop.

I've lived in Cancún for almost 18 years and I still can't get enough of this spot that is more beautiful and comfortable than ever before. Very well deserved Blue Flag certification.

Every time we are in Cancun in the hotel zone, we stop at this beach. It is perhaps the best beach in Cancun. It is a free public beach, which is also a favorite for the locals. The sand on the beach is great and the waves are awesome. Many people like to stop to take a photo at the... More

This public beach is clean and has soft white sand. The famous Cancun sign is located there, if you want to take it's picture, I recommend that you go there early in the morning where there are not so many people lining up to take turn for picture. It is located almost to the southern tips of the hotels strip... More

This is an awesome beach with clear blue waters and really fine white sand. We came on a Friday Morning and no one was there so we had the beach to ourselves. We took the R-2 bus from Live Aqua and it was a 10 minute bus ride. Totally worth a visit if you want to see a beautiful beach!

To be honest, we only stopped to take a look while out on a walk in the morning. The beach was absolutely beautiful and from what we could tell, very popular with the locals. There were numerous permanent palapas/wooden umbrellas and an awesome kids playground area...better than any I've ever seem at a beach in the US. I saw restrooms... More

One of the loveliest beaches I've been to date, with helpful thatched umbrellas dotted along the beach to provide shade. Very clean and there are playgrounds also for those with kids. If you are staying in hotel zone, any bus will pass by there and stop right by the beach entrance. If you are want a bit of culture, there... More

I'm not really sure why this beach rates so high ,maybe its because the locals can come and use it, All the beaches along the hotel zone are great but are not easy accessible unless you are staying at the hotel in front of it . OR is it that it has a sign that says CANCUN which almost everybody... More

Dont forget to get a picture taken in front of the CANCUN sign that sits in front of the beach. Also, its great for kids to play as it has a play area.
