The surf and sand are perfect! Love that it is in a bay so even when the waves are big, they are manageable and accessible.

The water temp was pleasant but not the blue waters of the Caribbean. A few days the waves were a little rough but never unmanageable.

It would have been nice if the water was clear, but it was delightfully warm with some fun little waves and no critters or seaweed.

beach is ok. The river spills into the ocean at the Gran Mayan so you get the brown/beige color not the pretty mint color.

We were there for 5 days (Riu resort). It rained every day while we were there. The green-ish/grey-ish water was very warm. The water was not clear. Lots of wood pieces, shells and trash washing ashore (it rained a lot the prior evening). The beach had a lot of debris here and there (again, only after the heavy rain), but... More

I actually liked seeing the vendors walking up and down the beach. I liked watching the paragliders. I loved that Mexican tourists came here bc it tells me it's a safe, desirable, well thought-of resort

It was so much fun. Great shops, restaurants and amazing shows going on at the beach. Each restaurant had its own unique appeal. Loved it!

The beach is cleaned and raked by the resorts along it. I found lots of shells for my collection. It's a long beach so great for walking. Beautiful sunsets as well!

Nice warm waters, gentle waves, not a lot of roving vendors. We made a nice big sand castle. Waves were big enough to body surf, and we did see some kids on surfboards.
