For beach lovers!

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.

It is right next to casa maya hotel, but the beach has so many seaweed and therefore it smells not good. I stayed at casa maya and i was curious about public beach so i went there but it was a bit disappointment.

Walkable from Tamarindo and out of the fray. There's great surf, so people watching is great. Also an inlet for getting away from the waves. Several people had their dogs there, everyone just chilling out. Gorgeous!
