Cancun is known worldwide for its beautiful beaches of turquoise waters and powder sand. It is difficult to select the best beaches, because they are all really lovely. We recommend these five, so you can put your plan together and go for an unforgettable vacation.
Whether you are going to party with friends, with the kids or with just your partner, there is an option for you. Fall in love with the Mexican Caribbean, with our great weather all year round and the warm waters that envelope the more than 140 km. of coastline that shape the Mayan Riviera. Have your phone ready to take lots of pictures, come and enjoy.
Located in km. 5 of the Cancun Hotel Zone, across from the flagpole and next to Casa Maya Hotel, it is one of the preferred beaches for water sports and to enjoy a day of sun and sea, due to its closeness to restaurants and shops.
Langosta Beach is one of the best if you are planning a family day. First, because there are no waves, so it is ideal for the little ones to enjoy a risk-free ocean. Secondly, because it is one of the main departure points to take an excursion to a pleasant day in Isla Mujeres.
If you come to Cancun with your group of friends and you are looking for good music and people to meet, Forum Beach is your place. You will find it at km. 9.5 of the Hotel Zone, between Cocobongo and Mandala discos.
As you walk along the path that takes you to the beautiful seashore, you will listen to the music of the beach club. You can rent a table and chairs, deck chairs and umbrellas, as well as order cocktails and even food, because there are food sellers and waiters serving the whole shore line.
Music, good atmosphere and lots of partying, all of this is at the Forum Beach. Get acquainted with Mandala Beach Club, Cancun’s most famed, with good music and tasty drinks that you can enjoy together with the ocean view, either pool-side or relaxing in a chaise-longue.
This beach is located near Forum and is much more tranquil. It is located at km. 10 of the Hotel Zone. Here too you can rent deck chairs, tables and dining chairs all year long.
During the turtle nesting season, you will see the nests, and at night you will be able to help the pups reach the shore safely. It is truly a beautiful show that is worth experiencing at least once in your life.
Past Plaza La Isla, at kn. 12.5 of the Hotel Zone, just before Plaza Kukulcan, you will find the almost hidden access to this magnificent beach.
You can buy some food and drinks at the convenience store in the shopping center, and get ready to enjoy a pleasant day at the beach. The waves are a little rougher in this area, so it is advisable to take precautions if you have in your party children or persons who can’t swim very well.
This beach, also known as “the viewpoint”, is located at km. 18 of the Hotel Zone. At the beach entrance you will encounter a long line of people waiting to take the typical picture at the famous “CANCUN” sign in pretty colorful letters. You will also be able to take amazing pictures of the beach from the viewpoint.
If you like surfing the waves, this is probably the best beach for you. If you arrive there early, you will be rewarded with free umbrellas. It is also equipped with public restrooms. Even though some food seller may walk by, it is advisable to take drinks and food in your back pack, since, unlike the majority of beaches in Cancun, this one does not have any shop or restaurant nearby.
Now is the time: get your towel, sunglasses and suntan lotion ready: the most beautiful beaches await to make of your vacation and unforgettable experience.
