Nice beach, perhaps one of the best in Cancun. I liked it because there were not so many tourists - mostly Mexicans. No shaddow of course, but you can rent umbrella. No worry for food and drink - there is a bar....

Another beach located @ the north - there are birds around and you can enjoy the sea breeze at the same time see the boats around here too.

I absolutely loved this beach! Mostly locals. Hardly any tourists. Uncrowded. No loungers. Palm trees for shade. Beside ferry dock. Warm, calm, shallow water. Great for small children and families. You can get a small table with umbrella. Bar and restaurant short walk away.

This is the perfect beach to go to during a weekday especially after 10am. It's very calm and friendly. Good after 10am because the boats that pick up tourists leave the dock at this time and the beach is left in good silence. It's also a good beach to visit as you first arrive Cancun. Don't forget to bring your... More

A peaceful spot to consider if you want to escape from crowded, noisy beaches full of spring-breakers. It's a public beach located on the hotel zone, and it's very easy to get there by bus (route 1 and 2 run frequently, every 5 minutes).

Walking distance to night life in Hotel Zone in Cancun. The location has the best beaches, views, and short rides to incredible diving and snorkeling. Short Ferry ride to Isla Mujeres island for a day trip.

My Cancun experience started from this 'beach' - what a waste of time: shallow, limited by buoys, tons of boats passing by, no public facilities, too small too crowded. Avoid North beaches and go to East ones

not so crowded, regardless the time of the year, most beautiful beach I've visited in Cancun. So calm that the fishes are swimming with us in the ocean.
