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.

Many people come to this beach despite having beaches in front of their own hotel as it is nice. Free changing rooms, bathroom, palm beach umbrellas. Many people flock to have their picture taken in front of the Cancun sign which turns into a long slow moving line. Recommend going early to get this picture to avoid the longer line.... More

The best view! And Beach! GORGEOUS The cancun sign is here and it's only 30 pesos to catch the bus here. Take the R1 or R2. Definitely worth the visit if your staying at a resort that's further down and lacks the best beach.

This is one of the few locations with access to the beach that doesn't go through a hotel. The beach is nice but nothing that we would recommend a special trip for if you already have a hotel with beach access.
