Nice beach

This is where you go to take a picture with Cancun itself. Beer drinking is allowed on the beach. Easy walk from the sidewalk to the water.

We arrived in the afternoon at it was quiet, it wasn't crowded and you can enjoy a free 'palapa' or the umbrellas (if available). There are facilities close to the main road, here is where the sign CANCUN is located and there is always a line up of people taking pictures... be patient.

Be prepared to wait in line if there is a big tour bus stopping by... or just stop off on the bus. It's just south of the Westin hotel.

This is a great public beach right off the bus route. Beautiful view and clean white sands. If you to Cancun you MUST STOP HERE. This is the place where the colorful CACUN sign is located. You have to have a picture taken here. There are showers and restrooms. And lots of security .

Beautiful beach with beautiful white sand. Waves keep you from swimming, but perfect location for boogie/knee boarding. Nice place to just lay back and enjoy the scenery.
