Public beach almost at the end of Cancun's hotel zone. You can find the CANCUN picture sign here if that's what you're after in your traveling. There's a couple of spots you're not allowed to go into the water, but the Lifeguards will let you know in case. There are a few palapas if you don't mind being far from... More

I only had one day in Zona Hotelera, and was told this was the best beach to visit. The water was very choppy, with a stronger-than-expected rip, probably due to the recent hurricane south of here. Therefore the total experience was disappointing. However, the white sand beach was nice, and not crowded in November.

Amazing beach with many locals to interact with. The water was wavy but swim-able. The beach service was great and the litre beer was definitely worth the money. I'd for sure go back!

We stopped at Playas Delfines before making our way to our hotel. Our driver was right, is a must to stop there. The turquoise waters were to die for and the water magnificent. I would definitely recommend this beach to anyone visiting the Cancun area.

Best public access beach on the Hotel Zone strip. Went there for a quick stop one a sunny afternoon to take pictures against the azul waters of the Caribbean. The colorful CANCUN letter are a great spot for a picture. Overall nice for a picninc/ evening stroll.

This was a really beautiful beach but with very rough waters. Don't recommend this one if you have kids, we went there and didn't go in the water, it was very dangerous.
