For beach lovers!

This is a place for those who love the beach at the same time can enjoy the sunbathing - swimming, surfing as the wave is strong enough too.

The beach is beautiful but avoid the bar called Forum Beach Cancun. The waiters tried to scam us : They ask a deposit to stay on the facilities (1500 mxn $ for 5 people). This deposit will be refunded at the departure, deducted from drinks and food. Half an hour later, after a fresh limonade, we decided to leave the... More

If you like clear turquoise seas, sugary beach, waves, crowds, with shopping nearby, this beach is perfect. Rental umbrellas and loungers available, but a beach towel on the sand (with shade from the nearby bar) would do as well for a short swim. Easily reachable by R1 and R2 buses that serve the hotel zone on a very frequent schedule.

If you're on your last day and you want to be at the beach with a ice cold adult beverage, but also want to pick up souvenirs! This is your place to be! The best Tequila is Cave` de Oro extra Anejo 90 - 99 US dollars. Ask for a tasting on the second floor tequila collection. (You can't find... More

This is the beach we most frequent now. During off season a lounger will cost you 100 pesos. Any other time it will be 150 pesos. The service and food have always been good each time we visit. Must visit when in Cancun.

There are a number of different beaches in Cancun, however the one that I like was at the top of the Hotel Zone opposite Senior Frogs and the Hard Rock Cafe big guitar. Simply take the R1 bus for about 20 minutes and you will reach one of the stops. The R1 costs 15peso for a one way ticket. Stroll... More

The beach sand was great & the water was so blue & so clear. The sound of waves & the Full Moon was just so wonderful & peaceful. I would tell everyone to go there & just enjoy life & what God had made.

I am a resident of Cancun and had a friend visiting from out of town and of course wanted to enjoy a day of the spectacular beaches of the Cancun Hotel Zone. Unfortunately, the MIA Hotel, my regular place is closed, and the Mandala Beach Club was full, so we ended up at Forum. I have no problem paying the... More

Every year we visit Cancun they have improved something on this public beach. More seating/coverage, work out equipment, children's playground etc. It is kept so clean. Lots of weddings and pictures taken at this location. Absolutely beautiful.
