Unfortunately, the beach was full of seaweeds. Red and Yellow flags for 5 days. It was impossible to even touch the water. Something unusual in Cancun for this month of August. Beaches usually are crystal clear.

Beautiful Beach, but a little bit dangerous if you aren’t a great swimmer. Lots of algea cloud the clean water.

Stopped by this beach on our way out of Cancun. It took forever to get there due to some road work going on but it was worth seeing the gorgeous emerald green water. This water and sand at this beach is magical and almost unbelievable...More

Great, well maintained public beach. We stayed at a nearby resort and visited after a trip to the El Rey ruins. Lots of iguanas to feed, locals selling fruits and drinks, and of course the famous Cancun sign. We didn't take a photo with the...More

The beach is nice, there are “palapas” available but you have to get there early to get one, otherwise you can rent an umbrella, two chairs and a table for $200 pesos. Lately there is a seaweed problem so sadly it dampens the experience but...More
