This is one of the few beaches where is locals can visit. The hotels don't let locals have access to the beaches.The view is amazing. The water is a little dangerous to swim in due to currents. This beach is used mostly by locals.

I was there in March and there were danger flags. You couldn't swim and lifeguards were all over whistling to those who were swimming.

Picture perfect beach and sea, great place for walk/sunbath.Nice view of Cancuns hotels in background.It was quite breezy during our stay so sea was bit rough and no one was swimming. Couple of small car parks besides main road if you coming by car. To take picture with Cancun sign and avoid queues will need to come early before 10... More

Absolutely gorgeous beach! Blue waters, blue skies, white sand & the water is warm it was a little windy but the view was all worth it. I can't get enough of this place, they have people walking around asking if you want to buy alcoholic beverages as well, here you can drink right on the beach.

Absolutely the best public in Cancun - nice beds and umbrellas that work with "tips" You don't pay a price - you leave your id and when you get back with the beach bed you pay "tips". Sanitary is very clean and you can by big drinks but no food or snack so bring your own.

Great view from the road of the beach and ocean below. A bit of a walk to get on the beach but worth it. White sand and beautiful water. Be careful in the water, it can get very rough. Great beach to people watch. There is parking by the road but get there early. There are great sunrises here from... More
